The TDSB's 2020-2021 school year calendar has been approved by the Ministry of Education and is now final.
Next year's calendar was originally approved by Trustees and submitted to the Ministry in March 2020. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty around the next school year, the Ministry was not approving calendars at the time.
Since then, the Ministry advised school boards to schedule three PA days prior to the start of student instruction to prepare for the reopening of schools. As a result, the following revision to the 2020-2021 school year calendar was made:
- Move the June 30, 2021 PA day to September 1, 2020. This results in 3 PA days before the start of school for students (September 1, 2, 3).
Students will begin class on September 8, 2020. September 4, 2020 is now a non-work day (non-paid day) for 10-month support staff and teaching staff.
The last day of school will be June 29, 2021 (PA day for secondary schools, instructional day for elementary schools and year round secondary schools). June 30, 2021 is now a non-work day (non-paid day) for 10-month support staff and teaching staff.
