Update on Continuation of Student Learning and EQAO Assessments

Wednesday, March 18, 2020
Categories: Happenings @ TDSB

We continue to provide updates related to the effects of school closures on the education system both at the TDSB and province-wide. Here is an update on the plans related to the continuation of student learning and the status provincial EQAO assessments. Please check back regularly for further updates.

Continuation of Student Learning Following March Break (March 23 to April 5)
The Ministry of Education is working on plans and taking the lead to support a province-wide strategy for the continuation of learning during the two-week closure period. The Ministry expects to launch a website this week with a single point of access to online learning opportunities and we will share this website with parents/families when it is available. In addition, the Ministry is working with Ontario’s school boards to help assess student access to learning in terms of information technology and support and to assist with the continuation of learning between teachers and students on a province-wide basis.
 

School boards are also assessing the resources they can provide to support student learning. At the TDSB, staff is working to make learning resources available to students during the two-week school closure period. We will keep parents/families updated as all this information becomes available online.

We know these are challenging times for students and families and we are committed to working with the Ministry of Education to support you during this unprecedented interruption to student learning.

Ministry Cancels EQAO Assessments
As you may already be aware, the Ministry of Education has announced that due to the school closure period and the uncertainty beyond that point, all EQAO assessments for the remainder of this school year are cancelled.

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.

We will share additional information and details when available.
