To that end, they can count on the support of the employees of CSDCCS’s schools, who consistently strive to better meet the needs of students and help them succeed”, states Melinda Chartrand, Chair of the CSDCCS.
“The results to the EQAO’s Grade 9 Math test demonstrate for yet another year that French-language Catholic schools of the CSDCCS are committed to the academic success of the students in their care. I would like to thank the educational teams, the Leadership Committee (comité d’orientation pédagogique – COP) and all the departments that work together to develop best practices aimed at the success of the students. I would also like to recognize the professionalism and commitment of the school staff as well as the leadership of the school principals, which help all students to reach their full potential ”, asserts Nicole Bradley, acting Director of Education.
The EQAO tests measure the students’ performance in reading, writing and mathematics against the expectations and learning contents prescribed in the Ontario Curriculum. For more information, please visit the EQAO’s website:
The EQAO results help schools and school boards to identify the areas in need of special attention to improve teaching and learning. The CSDCCS studies its students’ results, integrates their analysis into its operational plan and researches, for each school, the most appropriate leads to guide a coaching that is targeted and adapted to the students’ needs.
This year, the Conseil scolaire de district catholique Centre-Sud will receive over 16,000 students in its 57 schools: 46 elementary schools, 10 high schools and one elementary and high school, established on a territory covering over 40,000 km2, extending from the Niagara Peninsula to Peterborough and from Lake Ontario (Toronto) to Georgian Bay. Our vast network of French-speaking Catholic schools allows every student to become a member of a broad Francophone school community based on faith and to receive a top quality education in a learning environment that is rich, fair and inclusive.
