Private School Newsletter – Spring 2018

The purpose of the newsletter is to provide important reminders to Ontario private schools, specifically newly validated schools (in February 2018) and those seeking the authority to grant credits toward the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

The newsletter provides information regarding recently released policies and procedures related to private schools as well as items related to credit integrity, the granting of the OSSD and advertising restrictions and requirements. The newsletter also provides clarification and reminders about program planning and requirements pertaining to the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT).
