Student Transcripts and Records
If you are actively enrolled in an Avon Maitland District School and you require a transcript, diploma or a certificate, please contact your school directly. Go to our School Directory for a listing of schools.
If you are actively enrolled in school, student transcripts are free.
If you are not actively enrolled in school the fee is $10.00 for a transcript. In accordance with Regulation 293 of the Education Act, fees are now charged for an official transcript. If you are not actively enrolled in school and are applying for College, you must request your transcript online through the Ontario College Application Centre.

Requesting Other Types of Student Records
Every student in public education in Ontario has an Ontario Student Record (OSR) folder. This folder contains various documents relating to the student’s progress through our public school system. Once a student leaves public education in Ontario (i.e. either they move or they graduate), these records are kept at the last school they attended for 5 years. After that time, they are sent to the Education Centre for imaging and the OSR cover, the final official secondary school transcript of marks are kept for a grand total of 55 years, as required by law.
Please note: We do not keep duplicate copies of high school diplomas. However, the diploma you earned and the month and year you earned it are noted on the bottom of your transcript. Contact the last school you attended for these records.
Special Education reports created by Special Education staff (e.g. social workers, psychologists, speech language pathologists) are retained until the student is 31 years old as required by law. For current students, contact your school for copies of documents. For former students, contact the Board’s Learning Services Department. You will need to sign a release of information if the records are being requested by, or are going to be given to, a third party.
Requests for these types of records may be subject to fees.
Proof of Address for Revenue Canada
If you receive notification from Revenue Canada that you need to provide proof of your child’s address, Please note: address information is not archived within our Student Information System which means we may not be able to provide exact addressing confirmation.
