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.

School-Based Staff Allocation

A critical part of the TDSB’s annual budget process includes Trustee approval of school-based staffing for the upcoming school year. School-based staffing represents approximately 65% of the Board’s $3.1 billion annual operating budget and includes classroom teachers, educational assistants, principals, vice principals, school office clerical, caretaking, school-based safety monitors, early childhood educators and lunchroom supervisors.

School boards are funded based on student enrolment. Every year, staff look at enrolment projections and adjust the level of school-based staffing needed to support students. Board decisions about school-based staff allocations take into account legislative requirements including the Ministry of Education’s Primary Class Size and class size system average directives, Collective Agreement provisions and available resources.

All changes to school-based staffing for the 2017-18 school year are the result of changes to student enrolment or school closures, and are not anticipated to impact class sizes.
