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.

Looking Ahead

In the year ahead, we will focus on acting purposefully for our students, staff and communities, in a way that holds us all accountable for student achievement results, effective use of resources, staff talent growth and development, and planning to sustain and modernize our learning environments.

Our four-year action plan – the Years of Action: 2013-2017 – will guide our work with focus and purpose. Our collective efforts must ensure that every school is able to achieve the goals set out in the four pillars of the Board Improvement Plan.

In 2014, some areas that we will focus on include:

  • Providing professional development on advancing Aboriginal education to 100% of school and central leadership teams.
  • Providing all Grade 4-6 students the opportunity to participate in School Climate Surveys and using those results to focus our supports to our students.
  • Piloting an attendance support program to improve staff attendance and consistency throughout the system, as well as reducing staff costs.
  • Increasing public confidence by introducing quality service standards for all departments and schools to guide the way that we work and interact with each other and our community. These standards will include access and accuracy of information and response time, along with courteous and welcoming service from all staff.
  • Delivering a balanced 2013-2014 budget without impact to funds targeted for student and classrooms.
  • Developing a district-wide action plan to support Science, Technology,Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students.

We are proud to lead this world-class, action-oriented and inclusive public education system, the Toronto District School Board.
