Update on impact of postponement of EQAO Grade 9 math assessment in Peel secondary schools

​​Ontario students who are enrolled in a grade 9 applied or grade 9 academic math courses are normally required to take the EQAO Grade 9 math assessment. Since the grade 9 math assessment is entirely based on the Ontario Mathematics Curriculum, no special preparation is required.

Peel District School Board secondary teachers have been teaching the grade 9 math curriculum throughout semester one to students and will continue to work through the completion of the curriculum as semester one comes to an end. 

Given the impact of current job action by Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF) members on school boards' participation in EQAO, the Peel District School Board made the decision to postpone the EQAO grade 9 math assessment that was currently scheduled for January 2020.
