Changes to Graduation Requirements for 2021


Community Involvement Hours
Revision to the Graduation Requirement for 2020-2021 Graduating Students

For the 2020-21 school year, the ministry is revising the 40-hour community involvement graduation requirement so that students will not be adversely impacted by the ongoing challenges related to COVID-19.

For students graduating in the 2020-21 school year, the community involvement graduation requirement will be reduced to a minimum of 20 hours of community involvement activities. This recognizes that graduating students have had barriers to earning their community involvement hours last school year and there may be continued barriers this school year.

Please consult the district website for suggested volunteer activities and information on how students can submit Community Involvement Hours. Students should continue to seek out and accumulate community involvement hours in accordance with school board policies and procedures, keeping in mind local public health unit recommendations.

In addition, the Ministry is providing increased flexibility in regard to how secondary students can earn hours in 2020-21, as follows:

As per Ministry direction, at the principal’s discretion, students may complete volunteer hours during the instructional day and may claim hours for duties normally completed at home (i.e. walking a younger sibling to or from school, helping younger siblings with school work).

Students aged 14 years and older can count up to a maximum of 10 hours from paid employment towards their earned hours at the discretion of the principal. Students counting paid employment towards their graduation requirement will be required to complete a reflection exercise indicating how their work contributed to the service for others.

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT)

The Literacy Graduation Requirement (OSSLT/OLC4O)
has been Waived for Students Graduating in the 2020-2021 School Year

The literacy graduation requirement will be waived by the Ontario Ministry of Education (OME) for all students graduating during the 2020-2021 school year.

The OME is exploring a field test of the online OSSLT in the spring of 2021, which could allow the opportunity for non-graduating students to write the test and have successful attempts counted on their transcripts.
