CCL has completed the evaluation of the Ontario Ministry of Education’s Student Success / Learning to 18 (SS/L18) Strategy. The SS/L18 Strategy is a broad, province-wide strategy designed to ensure that every student is provided with the tools to successfully complete their secondary schooling and reach their post-secondary goals, whether these goals involve apprenticeships, college, university, or the workplace.
The SS/L18 Strategy was designed to meet five key goals focused on the secondary school system:
The evaluation process was composed of two main stages. The goals of Stage 1 were to provide a description and chronology of SS/L18 Strategy-related changes and to make general observations about the conduct of the SS/L18 Strategy, its strengths and vulnerabilities, as well as some preliminary recommendations for the future of the Strategy. The goals of Stage 2 of the evaluation were to build on the findings of Stage 1, to examine the research questions in more depth, and to provide recommendations to the Ministry with regard to future developments of the SS/L18 Strategy.
The Stage 1 Report (PDF, 415 KB) was released by the Ontario Ministry of Education on October 21, 2008. The Stage 2 final report (PDF, 2.8 MB) was released on Jan. 15, 2009.
