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.

Fees Update

Toronto Police Services fees for Police Record Checks (Vulnerable Sector Screening) for employees and volunteers. The fee changes are effective January 1, 2015.


Parents and community members are encouraged to participate in volunteer activities in our schools that support programs and services and help students succeed.

Here are some ways you can help in your child’s classroom or school:

  • Reading with students who need extra help
  • Arts and crafts activities
  • School plays or concerts
  • Arranging material in the library
  • Coaching sports activities
  • Supervising children on field trips
  • Serving as a speaker on topics related to the classroom program
  • Serving as a skilled mentor to a student who needs extra support
  • Collecting community materials for a classroom project
  • Producing the school newsletter or handbook
  • Participate in meetings and activities of the School Council


Parents and community members who wish to volunteer must, like all TDSB employees, complete a Police Reference Check (which will include a vulnerable sector screening) and be cleared before they can tutor/mentor in any TDSB location or participate in activities with our students. Your local school principal can provide support with the Police Reference Check process.


Volunteers in schools cannot be used to perform activities that are the responsibility of teachers or other Board employees, and must be limited to extra support activities. Contact your local school for more information on volunteering and the Police Reference Check Office at 416-393-0759 for any questions regarding the reference check process. You can also contact Michelle Munroe, Central Co-ordinator, Parent and Community Engagement at 416-397-3528.
