A complete list of calendar dates for all Yukon schools for the 2023–24 school year is now finalized and available online at Yukon.ca.
School calendars are developed in partnership with school administrators, school councils, and school communities, and then approved by the Minister and school boards for schools under their authority.
Schools that will be operating under the First Nation School Board have aligned their initial professional development days for educators to receive targeted professional development on Indigenous methods and practices of teaching before the start of the 2023–24 school year.
The two schools operated by the Commission scolaire francophone du Yukon (CSFY) align their school calendars with other Whitehorse schools.
The Government of Yukon publishes key school calendar dates early to support families, school staff and communities to plan around the school calendar.
School calendars in the Yukon require 950 hours of instruction throughout the school year and school days must be between 300 – 330 instructional minutes according to the Education Act.
Whitehorse schools share the same calendar dates. Watson Lake schools also follow the same calendar dates. Rural school calendar dates vary to meet the unique needs of each community.
School bell schedules are available through individual schools.
