Cancellation of OSSLT Tests on Thursday, October 20, 2016

 Permanent link

Dear Parents/Guardians

As you know, today(Thursday, October 20) was to be the launch of the province’s online version of the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). The EQAO web platform experienced technical difficulties prior to the beginning of the school day and continued well into the morning, preventing students from logging in to complete the test. This affected school boards across the province. As a result, a decision was made to cancel the test for today(Thursday, October 20). At this time, we are not anticipating that there will be a future date set for the online test.

We will proceed, as we normally would, to prepare our students to write the OSSLT on March 30, 2017. This administration of the test will include the traditional paper format, which will be available to all students.

We regret the stress and inconvenience this may have caused to our students. We will be working with EQAO to help them review the online process.

Superintendent of Education

First Nation, Métis, Inuit Self-identification

 Permanent link

If your child is a member of a First Nation, the Métis or the Inuit, then please consider having him or her self-identify.

Self-identification helps in several ways:

1. Students will have access to more culturally relevant programming and opportunities for unique cultural and academic experiences.

2. The school system will have an opportunity to focus efforts and resources, as well as an increased awareness of the diverse needs of
indigenous families.

3. The school community will have an opportunity for building relationships to increase student success and well being.

Share your pride in your heritage!

Please come to the office (or have your child do so) to get a card that can be filled in and submitted if you wish to self-identify.
