What is my child learning?

The Ontario Ministry of Education sets curriculum and achievement standards for all publicly funded schools in Ontario. Detailed subject descriptions, achievement charts and exemplars for Kindergarten to Grade 12 are available on the Ministry website. The achievement charts show what teachers look for when assessing children's work. Exemplars are samples of actual student work with notes explaining how marks were arrived at.

The Ministry website also has policies and strategies relating to the curriculum, the Trillium List of approved textbooks, and publications that support teachers.
