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.

Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

Community Hub

Welcome to Kindergarten with The Learning Partnership
In the year before starting school, parents/caregivers and their children are invited to attend a Welcome to Kindergarten family orientation at their neighbourhood school. At the orientation, families participate in activities, meet teachers and school staff and are given resources to prepare children for school and learning. Families are encouraged to continue to use the resources and activities in the months before their children start kindergarten and during the first few months in school.

Community and Faith Walks 
Toronto is among the most diverse cities in the world and is home to people of every culture, language group and religion. To help our school-based staff understand their community better and be responsive and relevant in their teaching, we support community and faith walks. These walks provide our educators with tools and first-hand experiences in creating curriculum and learning environments that are culturally responsive and locally relevant.

Family Adventure Passport 
This coupon book provides opportunities for students and their families to experience mainstream cultural and recreational activities throughout the city at a discounted rate.

Guide to Community Resources
We have put together a list of organizations and agencies to support students, families and communities. You will be able to find health and wellness, housing, education, financial and newcomer resources.

Parents Reaching Out Grants
Model Schools for Inner Cities collaborates with schools to identify potential project opportunities and to submit a proposal.

Parent Academy Committees and Parent Academy  
Parents are important partners in education and the Academies are designed by parents for parents to provide support to the school community. Parents and schools both want to help our students succeed and by working together, we can be a powerful force for positive change. By being a part of your local Parent Academy, you can help determine which programs are best for your school community.

Our Mission
To enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and well-being
and to acquire the knowledge, skills
and values they need to become responsible, contributing members of
a democratic and sustainable society.
