Renfrew County Catholic District School Board officials are delighted with secondary students’ achievements in all three standardized, province-wide tests for grade 9 in 2013–14.
“We’re very proud,” comments Chair Bob Michaud. “The positive results are a testament to both a long-term commitment on the part of our teachers and the hard work of our students.”
The provincial EQAO (Education Quality and Accountability Office) secondary results were officially released today (September 24). Grade 9 students in Renfrew County’s Catholic schools exceeded the overall province’s grades in applied and academic math, and the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT).
Michele Arbour, RCCDSB Director of Education, remarks “Our team of hard-working professionals is devoted to student engagement and achievement supported by 21st century learning environments. Their efforts inspire us.”
The results will now be reviewed at the board and school levels to inform a continuous improvement cycle.
“While we are very pleased with these results, we will use them to guide us as we take the next steps and develop new strategies to ensure that our students reach their full potential,” notes Superintendent of Educational Services Jaimie Perry.
The following results indicate the percentage of students at or above the provincial standard.
