Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

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.

Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

Eligibility for Student Transportation

All transportation applications are reviewed individually. These are the factors we consider for eligibility:


Students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5 may be eligible for school bus transportation if they live 1.6 km or more away from their home school.

Students in Grades 6, 7 and 8 may be eligible to receive TTC tickets if they live 3.2 km or more away from their home school.

Special Education

Students in Special Education, in most cases, must meet the distance criteria, but all applications are reviewed individually to consider any unique circumstances.


Students in wheelchairs are eligible for transportation. Transportation may also be provided for students who have a medical condition or disability that severely limits walking. 

Transportation is not provided for students attending any school or special program at their request, even when distance or medical condition is a factor.
