As a requirement set out by the Ministry of Education, students must pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test in order to graduate from secondary school. The literacy test is created and assessed by the EQAO (Education Quality and Accountability Office), an arm’s-length agency of the provincial government that evaluates reading, writing and comprehension skills based on the Ontario Curriculum’s expectations in language and communication up to and including Grade 9.
Community involvement may take place in a variety of settings, including businesses, not-for-profit organizations, public sector institutions (including hospitals), and informal settings. Students may not fulfill the requirement through activities that are counted towards a credit (cooperative education and work experience, for example), through paid work, or by assuming duties normally performed by a paid employee.
