Letter from Director of Education regarding cancelled Literacy Test on Oct. 20, 2016

​On Oct. 20, Peel secondary schools, like other secondary schools across Ontario, had planned for some or all grade 10 and previously eligible students to take an online version of the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). Unfortunately, the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) experienced significant, widespread technical difficulties with their online OSSLT network that prevented students from completing the test. As a result, EQAO cancelled the OSSLT assessment on Oct. 20, 2016 for all participating schools throughout the province.

Read a letter​ from Director of Education Tony Pontes for more details.
