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.

Special Education Plan

Each school board is required to maintain a Special Education Plan. This plan is reviewed on an annual basis to ensure it meets current needs. Amendments are submitted to the Ministry of Education for review (Regulation 306).

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) Special Education Plan focuses on students and recognizes the unique linguistic, cultural and racial diversity of Toronto schools and communities. The TDSB is committed to the development and implementation of effective special education programs and services that respond to student needs. Special Education is included in the TDSB Integrated Equity Framework Action Plan 2016-2019 and supports the Director of Education’s strategy for improving school effectiveness outlined in A Vision for Learning in TDSB. Special Education resources and services are directed to the schools in order to provide challenging and enriching learning opportunities for students with a wide range of abilities.

We welcome public input on the 2018 Special Education Plan. Input can be submitted in writing from September through March.
