Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

Parent Involvement

Parents and caregivers are an important part of student success. There are many ways for you to get involved in your child’s education.

School Advisory Council

Education is a shared responsibility between parents, caregivers, school staff, the government and the community. The school council helps ensure that all of these partners work together to improve education. Participating in the school council gives you a voice for new initiatives in your school community.

Parent Academies

Parents are important partners in education and the Academies are designed by parents for parents to provide support to the school community. Parents and schools both want to help our students succeed and by working together, we can be a powerful force for positive change. By being a part of your local Parent Academy, you can help determine which programs are best for your school community.

The Inner City Advisory Committee

The Inner City Advisory Committee advises the TDSB on matters concerning learning opportunities for students in inner city communities and on Board policies and programs addressing the socio-economic circumstances of students and families across the system, including the Model Schools for Inner Cities program. The membership is comprised of community resource persons, parents, educators, designated TDSB staff and trustees appointed by the Board.  The ICAC is co-chaired by seven Trustees on an alternate basis: Trustees Jennifer Arp, Sheila Cary-Meagher, Michael Ford, Tiffany Ford, Chris Glover, Howard Kaplan and Marit Stiles, student Trustee Jessie Waugh and a Community Co-chair, Ms Ingrid Palmer, elected in 2014. 

Parenting and Family Literacy Centres

Parenting and Family Literacy Centres are free, school-based programs for parents and caregivers with children from infants to age six. These fun, play-based programs are designed to support your child’s early learning and development and are aligned with the Kindergarten program. They offer a safe, nurturing and stimulating program where children can play and parents can connect with other parents in the community.
