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.

Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

Excellence Awards -- Frequently Asked Questions

What are the TDSB Excellence Awards? 
The Excellence Awards is our opportunity to honour and celebrate outstanding TDSB individuals and programs. Recognizing our staff not only celebrates their accomplishments and efforts, it inspires others to excel in their own roles.

Who deserves to be recognized? 
TDSB staff — both individuals and groups – who go above and beyond to support students, staff, parents and/or community members throughout the system.

Who is eligible to be nominated for a TDSB Excellence Award? 
Any TDSB individual or group is eligible. A maximum of 10 individuals may be included as part of any program or project nomination. 

What are the selection criteria? 
Submissions are assessed against criteria guided by the Board’s Vision for Learning, Integrated Equity Framework and Service Excellence. Ultimately, the question is: “How does this person/group go above and beyond every day in support of staff, students and/or the community.”

Who can nominate? 
Anyone! The nomination and reference letters can come from staff, students, parents or community members.

When and where are the recipients celebrated?

The Awards ceremony takes place on Monday, May 24, 2018, at 5050 Yonge Street.

How can I nominate someone for an Excellence Award? 
To start, you need to gather two letters of reference and one statement of recognition. The statement of recognition is an opportunity to deepen the nomination and can be written by the nominator. Then, you can complete the online nomination form. The deadline for nominations is Monday, March 19, 2018 at 4 p.m. 

How long does the online nomination process take? 
Once you have all three required pieces of the nomination package, the online nomination process will only take about 15 minutes to complete. 

When is the nomination deadline? 
The deadline for applications is Monday, March 19, 2018 at 4 p.m. 

Can non-TDSB staff win an Excellence Award? 
No. Excellence Awards are for staff recognition and are only open to employees of the TDSB. 

Are programs from the current 2017-18 school year eligible? 
Yes. Any current/recent program is eligible for nomination. 

Will nominees be notified that they were nominated? 
Yes. All nominees will receive a personalized letter congratulating them on their nomination as well as informing them of those who contributed to the nomination. A copy of the letter will also be filed in their personnel file.
