Kemptville Ontario — Students in grade 10 from the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario can be very proud of their efforts and achievement in literacy this year, as they continue to surpass the provincial standard. This success can be attributed to the use of technology in the classroom, to inquiry based learning and collaborative networks, where teachers meet to discuss best practices around student achievement. Technology, combined with good instruction and strong teacher collaboration enables students to differentiate their learning, to increase their engagement and to work collaboratively in a community of Catholic learners.
Director of Education, Wm. J. Gartland noted, “CDSBEO continues to work to help students attain positive results, and program strategies employed by the Board are making a difference in student achievement.”
As a Catholic community, the Board strives to implement a learning environment which is rich in collaboration. Students are called upon to think critically and creatively as strong problem solvers, and the focus continues to put emphasis on the individual learner and their unique learning journey.
The table above outlines the percentage of students in Grade 10 that were successful in the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test.
The CDSBEO continues to carefully examine results for patterns and trends. School teams will then use information to support the ongoing development of student learning.
