Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is listening.
With the controversial start date to the school year, the division is now looking for the input from parents, students and staff on next year's schedule.
A survey has been released asking whether students should start school before Labour Day Weekend and have a November fall break or students start school after Labour Day Weekend and do not have a November fall break.
"We're specifically looking for opinions on what's most important, starting after Labour Day or having November break," said Trina Boymook, board chair for EIPS. "It's challenging for us to offer both of those things."
Results from this survey will be presented to the EIPS Board of Trustees for consideration in determining the 2018-19 school calendar.
The survey will run until November 28 and can be found here.
