Student Achievement Through Equity (SATE) Inquiry

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) is committed to helping all students succeed and providing learning experiences, opportunities, and access to keep students engaged and excited about school. 

To achieve this outcome, we endeavour to champion high learning

expectations for all students in all programs, promote collaborative environments that

foster innovation, creativity, modernize instruction, and advance equity, dignity, and

students’ well-being in inclusive, caring classrooms.


Goal: Ensure that every student succeeds academically and develops a positive sense of well-being.

This will be facilitated through OCDSB’s Student Achievement Through Equity (SATE) Inquiry which aims to reduce barriers, overcome emotional and psychological hurdles, and create the right learning conditions.

SATE uses recent studies of outstanding schools and highlights factors known to contribute to successful schools to bring children, families and communities together into the educational environment as participants and partners in the learning process, with the school becoming the ‘Heart of the Community.’

These factors include achievement and standards; leadership and management; teaching and learning; innovative curriculum; targeted intervention and support; inclusion; family engagement; use of data; effective use of students' voice; and the celebration of cultural diversity.

SATE is part of OCDSB’s collective work strategy and collective actions which aims to create lasting and impactful transformative change.
