Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

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.

Inclusion and Special Education

What is Our Equity Goal?

We want every student in every school to be welcomed and included within the most enabling learning environment.

We are moving in this direction by:

  • Transitioning to more inclusive classrooms by making changes to the way we deliver Special Education programs.
  • Remodeling the Home School Program (HSP).
  • Collaborating with SEAC, staff and families to improve learning, achievement and well-being for students with special education needs. 
  • Developing parent-friendly communication materials. 
  • Implementing a system-wide professional learning plan to build capacity with a goal to improve learning, achievement and well-being for students with special education.
  • Conducting ongoing training sessions for staff throughout the year. Some examples include: Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) professional learning; Student with Special Needs: Management of Risk of Injury Behaviours; Supporting Students with Autism in the Regular Classroom and in the Community-Based Based Resource Model (CBRM); Individualized Education Program (IEP) content and In-School Support Team (IST)/School Support Team (SST) process. 
  • Resolving parent concerns in a timely manner.

What Have We Learned?

We have listened to voices of parents and families and will continue to make changes to improve service in the area of Special Education and Section Programs.

What’s Next?

  • Continue to improve how our current Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC)/Individualized Education Program (IEP) processes support our students.
  • Works more closely with parents so that practices connected to Special Education (e.g. Identification, Placement and Review Committee and Individual Education Plans) are consistent and allow for parent engagement and involvement.
