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.

Learning and Instruction

The goal of all learning and instruction, even in this time of COVID-19 school disruption, is to ensure each student learns grade-level content from the Ontario Curriculum and is able to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways in order to progress to the next grade. Achieving this goal requires each teacher to understand what is the essential knowledge from the current and prior grades and designing learning tasks to best meet the needs of their students. Determining how students will learn this content in the different instructional delivery models—in-person and remote —is critical.

The Ministry of Education has approved the following models for return to school in September:

Elementary (Kindergarten to Grade 8)
Students (including those in Special Education and French Immersion & Extended French programs) will attend school 5 days per week, with one cohort for the full day, including recess and lunch. Enhanced health and safety protocols will be in place, including smaller class sizes to help maximize physical distancing

Secondary: Students will have in-class learning on alternate days and synchronous as well as learning-at-home/asynchronous learning daily with enhanced health measures in place including smaller class sizes to help maximize physical distancing. 

Special Education:  Students in elementary school will attend school five days a week.  Secondary students in a Development Disability (DD) class will attend school five days a week. Other students with Special Education Needs integrated into regular courses will follow the Adapted Secondary schedule.

Students who choose not to attend school in person will participate in virtual learning.
