Calendars : CBE System Calendars


Quick Launch


CBE System Calendars

​System calendars establish common start and end days, and 10 system-wide days for schools to schedule parent-teacher conferences, professional development and organizational days. Schools may identify additional non-instructional days, late entries or early dismissals in consultation with their school community and area director, and in alignment with Alberta Education and CBE requirements for instruction.

While most of our schools follow the traditional calendar, a number use a modified calendar with an earlier start to the school year and additional breaks throughout the year. They're listed below.

Traditional Calendar

2014-2015 Modified Calendar

2015-2016 School Calendars Approved

The Calgary Board of Education has approved the system instructional calendars for the 2015-2016 school year. The traditional and modified calendars are updated from the tentative calendars previously linked to this page.
Highlights of 2015-2016 calendars:
  • 10 system-wide non-instruction days in each calendar.
  • First day of school for students in the traditional calendar is Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015.
