2025/26 and 2026/27 School Calendars

Rocky View Schools (RVS) is looking for parent/guardian, student and staff feedback as we plan the school calendars for the 2025/26 and 2026/27 school years.

Three drafts have been prepared based on previous feedback and provincial requirements for instruction and professional learning time and all statutory holidays. We want to know what you like best and least about each option, and which you prefer overall for each school year. This input will help to inform the Board of Trustees’ decision on the calendars, to be made next fall.

Beginning in 2025/26, RVS is considering a new fall break in November. This break is intended to support staff and student well-being. For each school year, we have proposed options that both include and do not include the fall break. Your feedback will help us to understand if this is desirable in our school communities.

Alberta school divisions must provide 475 hours of instruction for Kindergarten students per year, 950 hours of instruction for Grade 1 – 9 students per year and 1,000 hours of instruction for Grade 10 – 12 students per year. School must also end by June 30 each school year. It is up to local school divisions to determine best how to organize the school calendar to meet these requirements. All statutory holidays must also be included in the calendar.

Please review all calendars – available on this page – and provide feedback about each as well as your preferred option using this brief survey.

Thank you for your time and contribution!
