The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) met February 21 to review the school year calendar for 2023-2024 ahead of the March 1 submission deadline. Superintendent of School Effectiveness Dawn Finnegan presented the calendar, which was developed with to serve the best interests of students.
“Once a draft calendar was developed, the board began the consultation process,” said Finnegan. “It is important to align the school year calendar with our co-terminus public board, as of shared transportation is a shared service. We have done a thorough consultation to ensure this calendar meets the needs of our community, our families, our students and our staff.”
Schools, committees, staff, parents, and other stakeholders all provided feedback during the consultation process. All comments were taken into consideration, and feedback was circulated through the CDSBEO website and social media.
“I am pleased to see that the consultation process was very thorough, and that so many of our stakeholders and community partners had an opportunity to share their input,” said Chair Sue Wilson.
The final 2023-2024 School Year Calendar was approved by the CDSBEO board.
