Public Engagement Session on Education Assessment in Ontario

Date: 
Dec 12 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: 
Thunder Bay - Valhalla Inn


Earlier this fall, the Premier and Minister of Education announced a review of Ontario’s student assessment practices. Led by the Minister’s Education Advisors, the independent review aims to ensure that Ontario’s student assessments are culturally relevant, able to measure a wider range of learning, and better reflect student well-being and equity.

Over the next several weeks, the Advisors will be holding public engagement sessions across the province to seek input on how to improve student assessment.

The meeting in Thunder Bay will be held December 12 at the Valhalla Inn - Register Here

All members of the community are welcome to attend a public engagement session, at the below times:

  • 6:00 – 6:30 p.m. – Open House
  • 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. – Roundtable Meeting

Advance registration is not required, but does help with planning and preparations. During registration, there will be an opportunity to advise of any accommodation needs that will support your ability to fully participate in the engagement session in your region. Child minding will be provided.

The input gathered directly from parents/caregivers, students, teachers/educators, officials, business leaders and the broader community will be used to help develop recommendations for improving Ontario’s assessment practices.
