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 education 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.

School calendars updated in August 2021 to reflect the interim decision to acknowledge the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation for the 2021-22 school year.
