Provincial Results Indicate SCDSB Tops Five of Six EQAO Components Among Local English Students
Results from the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) indicate Grade 3 and 6 students of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board achieved the highest scores among the city’s English students in five of the six components on the EQAO provincial testing administered in May 2004. These scores are based on the percentage of students who demonstrate achievement at or above the provincial standard. Catholic students excelled in mathematics by meeting the provincial average of 64% for Grade 3 and surpassing it in Grade 6 with 59%. Grade 6 students also matched the provincial average of 58% in reading. Student excellence was also shared by the Board’s students with special needs who surpassed the scores achieved by special needs students across the province by 14% in reading and 16% in mathematics.
Rossella Bagnato, Academic Superintendent for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board is thrilled with the efforts of her students. “Skilled and caring teachers across our Board continue to successfully implement a variety of new strategies to meet each individual child’s needs and in doing so improve learning for all students. We believe that all of our students can learn and we celebrate their success,” maintained Bagnato.
