September 26, 2019 - BARRIE, ON: The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) released its province-wide testing results for school boards and schools. The results for the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board (SMCDSB) are as follows:

  • Grade 3 writing - 62% meeting or exceeding the provincial standard
  • Grade 3 mathematics - 48% meeting or exceeding the provincial standard

  • Grade 9 academic mathematics - 77% meeting or exceeding the provincial standard
  • Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test first time eligible students - 75% meeting or exceeding the provincial standard

Chair of the Board of Trustees Carol Corriveau-Truchon said, “It is important for parents, students and staff to remember that EQAO is only one of the tools we use to measure student outcomes and it is a consideration when board staff are planning curriculum and professional development opportunities. EQAO provides a snapshot of student achievement on one particular day, but ongoing evaluation in our classrooms reflect the learning and achievements that take place everyday in our schools.”

 

"Our students and staff work extremely hard all year, in every subject area, and we are particularly proud of those students who spend many hours writing the EQAO test each spring - they should feel good about their hard work and efforts," said Brian Beal, Director of Education. "EQAO is useful to help identify trends so that the province and the school board can put programs and strategies in place, enabling every student to achieve their God-given ability."
