Spring Break 2018-2019 years
The third quarter for many schoolchildren is the longest and most difficult period of study. Just think - almost three months of continuous study! By the end of February, all the delights of winter holidays are already forgotten, and the new is still so far away. So when are they, the long-awaited spring break of the 2018-2019 school year?
Dates of spring break
The exact dates for the holidays of 2018-2019 - spring, autumn, and winter - can only be called by the beginning of September 2018. Among other things, the terms may differ - that is, in different educational institutions, schoolchildren begin and end to rest on different days. There are two reasons for this difference in time:
- The right to set the dates of the beginning and end of the rest is reserved for the educational institution. The school administration independently determines the vacation time within the limits set by the law, while being guided by the orders and decrees of the ministry.
- Vacation dates depend on the form of study chosen by the school: trimester or quadruple. A break is required after each period, that is, at the end of a quarter or trimester. At the same time, trimester schools also have an additional “holiday” week in the middle of the training module.
Learning by quarters
The division of the school year into four unequal parts - quarters - is accepted in most schools in our country. Spring holidays mark the end of the longest and in many ways the most difficult quarter for schoolchildren - the third. Teachers are sure that spring rest is also needed so that schoolchildren can easily concentrate on preparing for exams or annual verification work, which is held in May.
Spring break in schools with training in quarters from March 25 to March 31 inclusive.
That is, the last day of study will be either Friday, March 22 (five days) or Saturday, March 23 (with a six-day training scheme). Again, you need to go to school only on April 1.
It is worth remembering that the spring break dates for the 2018-2019 school year are still approximate. No school has yet been made up of plans and training schedules for the coming year, which means that there is no unambiguous, firmly established timeframe yet.
We study on trimesters
It is much easier to calculate the start and end dates of a well-deserved school leave in schools with a trimester (modular) system of education. Trimesters are so good that the study load is distributed evenly, there are no too complex or too simple periods.Everything is pretty straightforward - five (sometimes four) weeks of study are replaced by a week of rest. Only winter holidays are out of the general scheme.
Spring holidays in schools with trimester education:
- March 18 - March 24; that is, studies will end either on Friday, March 15 (five days), or on Saturday, March 16 (six days), again to school on March 25.
- April 22 - April 28; that is, the last school day, either on April 19 on Friday (at five days) or on April 20 on Saturday (at six days), lessons will begin on April 29 on Monday.
And in this case, as with the quarter system of education, some changes are possible. Vacation can be shifted for a week, or (in case of force majeure circumstances) reduced by a couple of days.
The right to determine the duration of rest has the Ministry of Education. According to the standards established by this agency, the minimum break between two quarters should be seven calendar days. In this case, the total duration of vacation time for the entire school year must be at least thirty days.
Taking into account these standards, each educational institution - school, gymnasium, lyceum, college - make up their lesson plan and support it with a calendar schedule.In these documents it is mandatory to indicate the exact dates of the beginning and end of the quarters and the rest between them. However, in case of any unforeseen circumstances, the school administration has the right to move the planned dates and even shorten the time of the holidays.
