ONTARIO SECONDARY SCHOOL LITERACY COURSE
All students who enter Grade 9 in the 1999-2000 school year or in subsequent years must successfully complete the provincial secondary school literacy test in order to earn a secondary school diploma.
The test will serve both to determine whether students have acquired the reading and writing skills considered essential for literacy, and to provide confirmation that those students who have completed the test successfully have attained the provincial expectations for literacy. Once students have successfully completed the literacy test, they may not retake the test in the same language.
*You must pass the test in order to obtain your diploma.
