Posted on 03/18/2020

On March 17, the Minister of Education announced that the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) Assessments for the 2019-2020 school year are cancelled. This includes the Grade 9 EQAO Mathematics (semester 1 and 2), Grade 10 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT), and Grade 3 and 6 EQAO Assessments.

The literacy graduation requirement as set out in Ontario Schools, Kindergarten to Grade 12: Policy and Program Requirements, 2016, will be waived for students who are graduating in the 2019-2020 school year. Students who are not graduating this school year will have the opportunity to write the OSSLT in the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.
