It must vary, but what is a common amount of vacation time that teachers at K-12 schools receive? Thank you.
figure a month between terms (2 months) and official holidays throughout the year.
the month between terms has a way of getting whittled down tho.
OP, your in OZ?
Would probably average as around 3 weeks in October.
Week at New Years.
6 Weeks in March/April/May.
All depends on the school.
Some get 4 weeks in October and then 10 weeks beginning the first week in March and not returning until the 3rd week of May.
Some will make you do various English Camps etc. for parts of this. Such as 1 or 2 week camp in Oct leaving you 2 or 3 weeks holidays. And 4 week camp in March or April, leaving you 6 weeks holidays.
Some more. Some less.

The curriculum calls for about 180 instructional days per year (students are supposed to be in class for 1000 regular classes per year).
Add in non instructional school days (sports days, field trips, other event days) and you will probably be at the school for about 200 days per calendar year.
365 -200 = 165 days left. About 60 of those days are weekends during the school year. The remaining 100 days or so (aprox. 14 weeks) is your vacation time.
The only question is whether or not you actually get paid for your vacation time (often NOT if you work for an agency or end up with 10-month contracts).
