Ontario Student Record – APC014

Reviewed/Revised: May 2018


The Ontario Student Record (OSR) is the record of a student’s educational progress through schools in Ontario. The Education Act requires that the principal of a school collect information ‘for inclusion in a record in respect of each pupil enrolled in the school and to establish, maintain, retain, transfer, and dispose of the record’. The act also regulates access to an OSR and states that the OSR is ‘privileged for the information and use of supervisory officers and the principal and teachers of the school for the improvement of instruction’ of the student.

All staff are to strictly observe legislative requirements with respect to the contents of and access to the Ontario Student Record (OSR).
