It is definite that there will be a change to the schedule.

My question is, if "that" is necessary in this sentence.

For instance in the following sentence,
He said that he would do it.

You can remove the "the" while still being a correct sentence, and then it becomes,
He said he would do it.

    You mean the word "that?"

    If so, you are correct. In English, it is permissible to drop that in that situation, unlike in many other languages.
