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.

Code of Conduct
Virtual learning is a new experience for students, teachers and parents/guardians in response to COVID-19. While virtual learning is taking place at home, the same responsibilities and expectations of students and parents/guardians apply as they do for in-person learning. This includes existing board policies and procedures such as the TDSB Online Code of Conduct.
Outlined within the TDSB Virtual Schools Code of Conduct are guidelines and expectations for schools/educators, students and parents/guardians. and privacy issues and expectations related to online learning.

Students will be taking part in synchronous (live/online) learning throughout the day with maximum class sizes and synchronous (live/online) learning times, as outlined below. The synchronous learning time requirements align with the Ministry of Education’s guidelines for virtual learning.

Access to Devices
Every student in the Virtual School will be required to have a device. For those without access to a device, access will be arranged through the student’s home school through the Principal.
Entering From or Returning to In-Person Learning (Elementary)
We recognize that parents/guardians and/or students may want to switch between in-person learning and Virtual School. It is important to note that, for health and safety reasons, and because of the impact switching would have on staffing, physical distancing and space allocation, it will not be possible to immediately transition between the two models. As a result, an opportunity to enter the Virtual School or to return to in-person learning will be provided at key dates during the school year. Please visit the Switching Between Learning Models page for dates and more information.
Student Support Opportunities
A process will be established through the School Support Team for students in an Elementary Virtual School to have access to student support services including but not limited to special education resource support, social work, speech and language and psychology.
At this point in time, Elementary Specialized Programs will not be available in Virtual School.
