Calendar changes for school district

North Okanagan-Shuswap students face new date for professional development day

The school year is in transition for North Okanagan-Shuswap students.

Trustees have made amendments to the school district’s 2013 calendar.

“The professional development day scheduled for Feb. 22 will be moved to Feb. 15, which will bring it in line with surrounding school districts and allow for local teachers to be involved in professional development with other teachers of the region,” said Alice Hucul, communications co-ordinator.

There will also be one other change to the calendar in February to accommodate the new B.C. Family Day holiday.

“The date for this day has not yet been set by legislation,” said Hucul.

“The rest of the calendar will remain as set last year and is available at”
