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.
Both students and staff require tools and strategies to respond to racism, hate, bullying, and other injustices in a manner that reduces impact on those targeted and reflects a sincere and active commitment to ensuring a culture of respect for human rights in the school. The skills needed to identify an act of hate and discrimination and intervene with or on behalf of someone being attacked can be learned so that students are better able to identify when and how to intervene when they encounter these situations in their daily life. Healthy school communities exist when everyone is committed to challenging racism and discrimination in all its forms rather than being a bystander or waiting for others to act.
Student leadership teams will participate in training to identify acts of hate and
discrimination and learn strategies to intervene in the first year of this strategy
supported by Learning Centres and centrally assigned staff.
