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.

Homework

Homework is important and is a chance to catch up and ask for extra help when you need it. Completing homework builds good study habits that will help you to succeed in high school and beyond. 

The TDSB's Homework Policy aims to balance the time required for you to complete your homework with other commitments you may have such as extra-curricular activities or a part-time job. Homework assignments for students in Grades 9 to 12 are carefully planned by your teachers with an estimated completion time of two hours or less.


Extra Help
Are you are looking for extra help with homework? All TDSB schools offer programs, peer tutors, or homework clubs. Many high schools also offer extra help at lunchtime or after school. If you are interested and want to know what your school offers, talk to your teachers and/or principal. 


Tips
  • Record homework in your agenda or planner, and make sure the expectations are clearly understood
  • Ask teachers for clarification or help when expectations are not clear or you have a time conflict because of homework assignments in several different subjects
  • Set a time for homework and work in a quiet space away from distractions

Resources
  • Online Homework Help. Get free, live, online math tutoring from experienced, certified Ontario teachers.
