A huge thank you to students and staff who persevered with the online OSSLT (literacy test) trial today.  We are really proud of you for striving to achieve despite repeated technical difficulties.

The cancellation announcement below was sent to us from EQAO regarding today’s trial:

We acknowledge that we are experiencing widespread technical issues with the online OSSLT network.
We regret to inform you that we have cancelled today’s assessment.
We recognize all of the work that schools have done to prepare for this trial. We are disappointed at the outcome of this trial and sincerely apologize for this development.”

As we get more information about future OSSLT dates, we will let students and their families know.
