Start-of-Year Forms

Tuesday, November 22, 2022
Categories: Happenings @ TDSB

School start up forms can be completed online. This model is simple and secure and will help streamline the process of a number of standard forms as well as save paper and resources.


How does it work?

After your child’s first day of school, an email will automatically be sent to the parent/guardian that is the primary or secondary contact with an email address on file with the school. The email will come from TDSB Online Form ( and will take you to a secure site to complete and submit your child’s forms.

Am I required to complete an online form?

Completing the form online streamlines the process not only for parents/guardians, it also helps save resources in schools. While you are not required to complete it online, we hope as many parents/guardians as possible use this opportunity.


I received a paper copy and an online copy. Which one should I complete?

The online copy is preferred.


How safe is it to submit this information online?

I have multiple children in the TDSB; will I receive more than one link?

Yes. Please complete a form for each child.


I did not receive the link? How do I get it?

Start with your school office to make sure your email address is accurate and active. Once the email is entered into our student information system, the parent/guardian will receive the email the following school day.
