Overview

The Department of Services for People (Education) are consulting on the school session dates for 2014/15.  There are 2 options to be considered for East Lothian schools:

Option 1  -  Proposed East Lothian draft dates for 2014/15 (in line with Midlothian Council dates)

Option 2  -  Approved City of Edinburgh Council dates for 2014/15

If you would like to indicate your preferred option i.e. should East Lothian Council go with the draft proposed dates in Option 1 which align with Midlothian Council school session dates or should we mirror the City of Edinburgh Council dates (Option 2) please complete the online survey.

Why We Are Consulting

The Department of Services for People is required to consult on the draft school session dates each year.

What Happens Next

Following the close of the consultion a report will be taken to the Education Committee on 24 September 2013.  Thereafter the approved school session dates for 2014/15 will be published on the Council's website and sent out to schools.
