THE ONTARIO SECONDARY SCHOOL TEST - OSSLT
All students who need to write or rewrite the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test will have 2 opportunities to write the test this year. The October 20, 2016 administration will be strictly online, and the March 30, 2017 will offer both online as well as paper. We are going to have all students attempt the October administration of the test, and any student who is not successful at this time will be able to rewrite in March.
All students will receive training on the EQAO online test and we strongly encourage students to log on at home and try the practice tests available. These practice tests, as well as instructional videos are available at www.eqao.com under the STUDENTS section.Details
Grade Level IPP Activities
As a high school student you have the opportunity to learn more about yourself, your career opportunities, post-secondary options, and investigate things of interest to you. This is done through your Career Cruising IPP Activities. This year we are going to post Activities that we would like you to complete each week so when midterm marks come out you have completed most of the activities.
You can access the grade level IPP activities using the website menu, under Academics, Grade Level IPP Activities. You can also use this direct link.
