Durham Region students continue to score higher than provincial average

Student achievement and success remains a guiding focus for educators and staff at the Durham District
School Board (DDSB).

The latest results released by the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) show that DDSB
students are achieving above the provincial outcomes in all nine areas of assessment. There was a slight fluctuation in results compared to last year in Grade 3 and 6 Math, and Grade 9 Applied Math, however they still remain higher than provincial results overall. The Grade 10 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) result is also up for the first time in three years, and is above the provincial outcomes for first time eligible, fully participating students.

“These results are a culmination of a number of years of work to support our students,” states Michael
Barrett, Chairperson of the Board. “We are incredibly proud of all our DDSB students and their
achievement.

“We are proud of the effort from our teachers and principals,” says Lisa Millar, Director of Education at
the DDSB. “Our educators’ continued focus on improving literacy and numeracy, and developing
programs to support learning, shows our teacher’s commitment and dedication to our students. We are
proud of our students and all staff.”
