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.

What else do I need to know?

To get the most from your high school experience, be prepared to commit to your learning, try new things, be open to making mistakes and embrace them as opportunities to learn.

It is especially important for parents/guardians of Grade 8 students deemed exceptional to attend the Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) review meeting. This way, parents can ask specific questions around what the placement setting means in relation to the IPRC‘s Decision.

…and finally

You are engaged when your courses provide learning experiences that are clearly aligned with your strengths, interests, needs, preferred learning style and aspirations. When this occurs, you have increased chances for success.

You will know if you have made appropriate course and program selections when:

  • You are also able to participate in a range of extra-curricular programs in addition to your courses and studies
  • You attend school consistently and regularly
  • You have a positive mindset to learning and the school experience.

You can maximize engagement, build confidence and have success by personalizing your school program to include courses from all subject areas, particularly in Grades 9 and 10.
