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

Student Device Support

Students and families who completed the technology-needs survey to assist with their remote learning  will receive their Chromebook between April 6 to May 8. The devices students will receive are from TDSB schools. Students in Kindergarten - Grade 2 will receive an iPad. Students in Grades 3 - 12 will receive a Chromebook.

The device will be delivered to the student’s home by Purolator Courier. No signature is required but the Purolator staff member will ask for and record the name of the person who receives the delivery. 

Chromebooks are laptops running the Chrome operating system and work best when connected to the internet but do function offline as well. Chromebooks are built to startup quickly and to efficiently access webpages. They work very well with G Suite for Education and the Brightspace Learning Platform. 

Students login to a Chromebook with their TDSB Account ID (looks like an email address) and is in the form of and their password. 

TDSB is providing the following types of support for the Chromebooks being used at home:

  • Assistance with logging in to the Chromebook
  • Assistance with account questions
  • Connecting to wifi

To receive assistance with questions about these topics please email please be sure to include your child’s name and school along with your name. 

Questions about digital learning tools such as Google Classroom, Brightspace etc. along with questions about school work should be directed to your child’s teacher. 

If you requested a device and no longer need it:

  • If it is pending delivery, the only option is to refuse the delivery and it will be returned to the TDSB.
  • If you have already accepted your device but no longer need it, we are not able to pick it up and ask that you keep it and return it to your school when schools reopen.
