Toronto District Elementary School, Toronto District Secondary School: Education and Community Partnership Program

Everyone at the Toronto District Elementary School (TDES) and Toronto District Secondary School (TDSS) is highly committed to equity and inclusion in our daily practise with students, families and our agency partners to support students from JK to Grade12. Student’s needs are supported in a variety of instructional settings, through multidisciplinary approaches in close partnership with agencies.


Primary (Grades 1-3)

Junior (Grades 4-6)

Intermediate (Grades 7-8)

High School (up to age 21)

The partnership between the agencies and the TDSB provides best practices in treatment and education for children and youth during the school day.

The agency provides services in one of the following categories:

We welcome and support all students into our diverse programs and work with our agency partners and mainstream schools to ensure successful transitions. Our goal is for all students in ECPP programs to learn in a supportive and inclusive environment where all voices are valued and heard.

Our agency partners work with the TDES/TDSS to meet the well-being needs of all students (i.e., cognitive, social, emotional, physical). We  provide services to children and youth that incorporate treatment in all of our unique sites. Students are taught by Toronto District School Board teachers following the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum.

Schools, along with parents, may advocate for students to receive a placement within one of the programs through the TDSB Central Intake process. Alternatively, families may contact agencies directly. Please connect with your school’s Principal, Vice Principal or Social Worker to learn more about these options.
