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


Homework is an important part of every child’s school experience. It is an opportunity to engage in learning at home and to support what is learned during the school day. Homework encourages good study habits at an early age that will help students to be successful. School staff, teachers, students and the family all play a key role in supporting homework. Positive and open school-home partnerships ensure students have the support they need to be successful. 

The TDSB Homework Policy outlines how everyone involved works together and is written based on current teaching and learning practice, research, student census data and the results of consultation with parents, educators and the community. The policy balances the time required to complete homework with extra-curricular activities and other activities that support personal and family wellness.

Homework Tips and Resources

Parents/guardians are a key part of finding homework success. Some tips on what you can do to support your child include:

  • Set a time for homework and provide a quiet space away from distractions
  • Practice math, reading and writing daily and encourage your child to help you read and write everyday items such as recipes, newspapers or shopping lists
  • Show interest and talk about what happened at school
  • Praise and encourage your child to ask for help when needed
  • Keep in touch with teachers and ask about completed homework


Looking for extra help with homework? All TDSB schools offer programs, peer tutors, or homework clubs for parents and students to access. For information about what’s happening at your school, talk to your child’s teacher and/or principal.
