OFIS Corrects Misinformation In Toronto Star Stories

November 30 2013 – Barbara Bierman – OFIS Executive Director – News Release
OFIS rejects the idea that children in early learning programs at private schools are in
danger and that those schools have no accountability. In order to receive and
maintain a BSID number, Board School Identification Number, all private schools
must file an annual Notice of Intention To Operate A Private School which requires them to report on all criteria established in the Education Act, including the number of children who are beneath the compulsory school age of six years.

Additionally, all private schools  are required to report quarterly to OnSIS, the Ontario School Information  System, which is a web-based application that integrates and collects school,  student, educator as well as course and class data at the elemental level.
