The office of the EQAO (Education Quality & Accountability Office) has announced the call for applications for the 2021–2022 EQAO Student Engagement Committee. This committee continues to be one of their key sources of student voice. It’s also an opportunity for interested students to have a positive impact on the agency’s activities and on Ontario’s education system.
Students are the focus of EQAO’s work, and are valued for their learners’ perspectives on everything done at EQAO. Student voices and experiences help EQAO to advance the goal of continuous improvement.
EQAO encourages applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit or Indigenous person. As an accessible agency, they offer accommodations as required, including during the recruitment process.
Who is eligible to apply?
- Applicants must be enrolled in an Ontario school in Grades 7–12.
- Applicants must have completed at least one EQAO assessment.
Submissions must be received by June 7, 2021, and selections will be announced by the end of June 2021.
Accommodations are available for students taking part in the application process.
