- The percentage of students who have completed 16 credits or more by the end of Grade 10, and progress in this area
- The percentage of students who have completed 23 credits or more by the end of Grade 11, and progress in this area
- The percentage of primary classes with 20 or fewer students, and progress in this area
- The percentage of students who graduated with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) within four or five years of starting Grade 9.

Why are we doing this?
- To show you how progress is being made in your board. The indicators represent some of the government's priority areas for education including class size in the primary grades, improved literacy rates and sound financial management.
- To be open and transparent as part of our commitment to boost public confidence in publicly funded education.
- To show you the good progress school boards are making towards helping students succeed.
