PA Day Activities & Agendas

PA Day Activities & Agendas

UCDSB schools have several professional activities (PA) days during the school year. During these days, students stay home but schools remain open as school staff focus on professional development.

The purpose of PA days is to improve student success. Educators have the opportunity to discuss challenges, review research and collaborate to create lessons, activities and assessments for their students.

The Ministry of Education’s regulation states that school boards must designate three Ministry Directed PA days and may designate up to four additional PA days per school year.

Here is a breakdown of what PA Day activities are happening for the 2020-2021 school year.
