Information and communication literacy is one of the main meta-subject competencies that graduates of the secondary school should possess. The full-fledged formation of this competence is considered as one of the tasks of preparing students for life in the information society and the digital economy. The article discusses the results of a monitoring study of the information and communication literacy of 9th grade students, which was conducted in 21 regions of the Russian Federation in 2020. About half (45.4%) demonstrated a level of competence that corresponds to the readiness for life in the digital economy. Was considered the influence of the equipment of schools and the peculiarities of the organization of educational activities on the students’ level of information and communication literacy (ICL). The results of the study indicate a strong connection between the students’ competence and their out-of-school environment and a weak — with their work in the school. Research findings allow to determine the reasons for the insufficient level of ICL in a significant part of graduates and used to propose recommendations for its increase.
