OSSLT Information

OSSLT March 27th - March 31st
Posted on 03/09/2023

The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is a provincially mandated test that is a graduation requirement. Students at Kingston Secondary School will be scheduled to write the OSSLT between March 27 and 31, 2023.  All grade 10 students who have not previously written, and those who were unsuccessful in their previous attempt, will be eligible to write the OSSLT.

Those writing for the first time will write with their English classes; students attempting for a second time or who were absent will be scheduled to write during the same timeframe.  Eligible students will receive a letter, closer to the test date, that indicates when they will write.  

Learning Program Support (LPS) teachers will connect with students who have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) to discuss accommodations for the test.  

Additional information about the test can be found on the EQAO website, here. Please speak to your student about preparation for the test.
