The TDSB has launched a School Activities Directory - an internal, online listing of all pre-qualified and approved vendors for excursions.
When deciding on a class or school trip, staff in the TDSB’s 588 elementary and secondary schools will be able to use the School Activities Directory to access information about vendors who provide excursion venues and services.
The School Activities Directory means that vendors will only have to be vetted once by the TDSB. It will also result in improved payment processing as vendors will be paid via electronic funds transfer.
If you are interested in having your excursion opportunity listed in the TDSB’s School Activities Directory, please complete the online application. Your application will be reviewed by academic staff to determine curriculum relevance. There will also be an operational review of submitted documentation related to insurance, safety standards and contractual requirements.
Once your vendor review is complete and has been approved, your information and applicable forms will be added to the School Activities Directory where teachers and school staff will be able to access this information to plan their excursions.
Excursions will fall under one of the following categories:
- Museum, Gallery and Cultural Centre
- Athletics/Outdoor Activities
- Conservation Centre/Farm/Zoo
