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

Settlement Workers

Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS), also known as SEPT, offers settlement services to newly arrived families and secondary school students in schools’ satellite and reception centres. Settlement Workers deliver individual/family services or group programs that help participants to understand and to successfully transition into the education system and to accelerate the settlement process. SEPT also delivers two programs in the summer for newly arrived students and families, some of whom are enrolled in TDSB summer school courses. These programs include:

  • Newcomer Orientation Week (NOW) program for secondary students
  • Welcome Information for Newcomer (WIN) program for middle schools students and families.

Newcomer Family/Parent/Student Referral to SWIS

Local schools will forward and collect informed consent from the parent/guardian of the student or from the student who is 16 years of age or older and relay this consent form to the appropriate settlement agency. Consent forms will be available at the time of registration and will be made available to families and students as needed.
