Given the school closure period and the uncertainty beyond that point, we will be cancelling EQAO assessments for the remainder of this school year. We appreciate the work done to prepare for these assessments by EQAO and school board staff.
For students who are graduating in the 2019-20 school year, the literacy graduation requirement as set out in Ontario Schools, Kindergarten to Grade 12: Policy and Program Requirements, 2016 will be waived. This applies to students in publicly-funded and private/First Nation schools. Students who are not graduating this school year will have the opportunity to write the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) in the upcoming 2020-21 school year.
