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.

Financial Stability and Accountability

At the TDSB, we are committed to balancing our budget and ensuring Board funds are managed responsibly and effectively. Every decision we make and every dollar we spend has a student face behind it. We must put learning resources and tools directly in the hands of our students and see that every dollar we spend is an investment towards improved student outcomes.

We finished the 2012-13 school year in a balanced capital position with an approved long-term capital plan. The plan includes priority projects and priority expenditures to address urgent capital needs, essential to build strong, vibrant school communities with fiscally responsible and sustainable futures. We have also made a number of changes to our structures and processes in order to find efficiencies and improve operations, including:

  • conducting training sessions and providing direct on-site support to schools to ensure policy and procedural compliance
  • developing annual department work plans to support the strategic directions of the Board
  • providing quarterly financial reports showing actual expenditures compared to budget plans.

Of significant note, our Facilities Services department has undergone a major transformation after reviewing a number of its processes to improve efficiency, accountability and cost. Key actions include improving service and access to facilities-related information through a new Facilities website, conducting regular performance reviews of management and improved project management.

To remain open and transparent, we launched an accountability website where the public are invited to read about all of the changes we’ve made and are planning to make to improve operations at the TDSB. This includes more about the recent facility services changes we’ve implemented, the changes we’ve made as a result of recommendations from various reviews and audits, and the new financial management tools that are helping all departments within the TDSB stay on budget. We continue to update this site to demonstrate our ongoing fiscal accountability.
