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.

Toronto District School Board Section 23 Programs

The Toronto District Elementary and Secondary Schools (TDES, TDSS) serve students from JK to Grade12, whose needs are supported in a variety of instructional settings, through multidisciplinary approaches in partnership with agencies.

A student in TDES/TDSS is a client of an agency funded by the Ministry of Child and Youth Services or the Ministry of Health. The agency provides services in one of the following categories:

  • Care (e.g., hospitals, young mothers),
  • Treatment (e.g., child/youth mental health centres),
  • Corrections (e.g., open detention/custody).

We have intensive supports available through the partnership between the Ministry of Education and other ministries.  TDES/TDSS meets the well-being needs of the child (i.e., cognitive, social, emotional, physical). Alongside receiving services provided by the agency, students are taught by Toronto District School Board teachers following the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum.

Schools, along with parents, may advocate for students to receive a placement within one of the programs through the TDSB central intake office. This is followed up by the agency intake process.  Alternatively, parents may contact agencies directly. 

We anticipate that soon there will be a central point of intake through a lead agency called East Metro Youth Services.
