EQAO – Grades 3&6

For those parents with children in grades 3 and/or 6, please note that your child will be
participating in the grade 3 and 6 standards-based assessment, known as EQAO, Education Quality and Accountability Office. This year students will be participating in the assessment from May 21st to 31st. Specifically, our Grade 3 students will participate between May 21st and May 24th, while our Grade 6 students between May 27th and May 31st.  If at all possible, please ensure that you don’t book any family vacations and/or medical appointments during this time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.

As many parents and educators are aware, EQAO assessments are used in schools to plan for continuous student improvement in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy. The school based results assist in developing goals for improvement, namely by targeting areas in the curriculum which may require additional focus.
