Toronto Catholic District School Board

TCDSB Celebrates Student SuccessAs Graduation Rates Continue to Climb

For the first time this spring, the Ministry of Education has published individual school board graduation rates on their website. The Toronto Catholic District School Board is pleased to report that according to Ministry data, 86% of the board’s 2009-2010 grade 9 cohort graduated within five years of starting secondary school. That is above the provincial average of 84%.
“Our continued focus on student achievement and well-being is evident in the consistent growth in grade 9 and 10 credit accumulation and the rising graduation rates,” says Angela Gauthier, Director of Education. “This steady improvement speaks volume to the commitment of our staff, and the support and involvement of our parents.”
This ongoing improvement is due in large part to the Board’s commitment to differentiated instruction to address the diverse learning needs of individual students, and differentiated supports offered to schools on the basis of community need.
“TCDSB’s focus remains on excellence in education,” says TCDSB Chair Michael Del Grande. “We will continue to explore opportunities and new strategies to support student success.”
