Additional Non-Instructional Days

The Richmond School District is beginning the process of implementing a new curriculum mandated by the Ministry of Education for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. These new directions in curriculum are intended to give our students the knowledge, skills and attitudes they'll need to succeed in a world that is dramatically different from the one we know today.

To support this change, the Ministry of Education has given each school district in British Columbia two additional non-instructional days during the 2015-2016 school year. A non-instructional day means that students will not be attending school, but our staff will be involved in professional learning that day. The two non-instructional days will be January 29, 2016 and May 2, 2016.
