Universal Screening Process for Grade 3 Students

Looking for more info on the Universal Screening Process for Grade 3 Students going on at Gledhill this week?

Effective September 2016, the Toronto District School Board introduced a universal screening process for all Grade 3 students across the board. The purpose of this universal screening test is to:

  • Provide information to classroom teachers about the strengths and learning needs of each student in order to better support teachers in programming for students
  • Help teachers to know when to bring a student forward to In School Team (IST) or School Support Team (SST) for programming suggestions
  • Improve equity of access for all students to differentiated programming including the potential identification of students with a gifted exceptionality

There are several useful FAQ and Parent Information documents available on the TDSB site which may contain answers to your questions:
