The 2021-2022 school year will see 182 instructional days and students returning to the classroom on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
The provincial school calendar outlines the dates of instructional days for students, professional learning days for educators, parent-teacher interview dates and school holidays.
“In developing the school calendar, we look to find the best balance of learning time for both students and staff because we know that high quality professional learning opportunities for educators are directly linked to student achievement. I would encourage families to use the school calendar to support their children’s education by planning for family appointments, holidays and other activities in a way that maximizes the amount of time children spend in school.”
– Education and Lifelong Learning Minister Natalie Jameson
The calendar is developed by a committee of representatives from the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning, PEI Home and School Federation, Fédération des parents de l’Î.-P.-É. Inc., the PEI Teachers’ Federation, Canadian Union of Public Employees, La Commission scolaire de langue française, Public Schools Branch, principals, teachers and staff.
