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.

Employment Equity

What is Our Equity Goal?

Committing to the development, implementation and maintenance of employment and promotion policies, practices and procedures that result in and sustain a workforce that, at all levels, reflects, understands and responds to our diverse population.

How Have We Started To Achieve It?

  • Developed the 2017 Staff Census and Well-Being Survey and launched it to staff in November 2017. 
  • Recommenced a leadership and mentoring program for Racialized and Indigenous staff. 
  • Reviewed the current Principal & Vice Principal hiring process from an equity perspective 
  • Developed “look-fors” to support Equity as a Leadership Capacity which will support further accountability across the system
  • Engaged Senior Team in specific professional development to deepen understanding of hiring with an equity lens. 
  • Launched a new selection process format for Central Administrator positions to identify people who exemplify the leadership attributes – including the ability to identify and remove systemic barriers to students’ achievement and well-being – necessary to move the system forward

What Have We Learned?

We must be intentional as we work across the system to improve hiring practices – to make sure our processes are free of systemic barriers.

What’s Next?

  • Develop promotion processes that are aligned with the Framework to promote equity and inclusion. 
  • Review hiring processes and ensure Equity “look-fors” are embedded in all processes. 
  • Establish a complementary tool to support the Ontario Leadership Framework with an equity lens - to build capacity and support accountability.
