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

Revised Health and Physical Education Curriculum

In February 2015, the Ministry of Education released the revised Health and Physical Education curriculum to all school boards in Ontario. Boards are required to implement the curriculum starting in September 2015. 

The curriculum has been revised to address current issues relevant to student health and well-being, and better reflect Ontario’s growing and diverse population. These updates include information about healthy relationships, consent, mental health and online safety. 

The TDSB is committed to the success and safety of every student. It is important that what we teach in our schools is current, relevant and age-appropriate so that we can provide students with the best possible information to make informed decisions about their health and well-being. It is also important that the curriculum we teach is inclusive of our diverse student population and reflective of the Board’s longstanding commitment to equity and inclusion. 

More information about the delivery of the curriculum will be shared with parents before September 2015. 

In the meantime, parents are encouraged to read the full curriculum and parent resources, available on the Ministry website.

If you have further questions about the content of the curriculum, please contact the Ministry of Education at 416-325-6870.

Key Facts:

  • It is the role of the Ministry of Education to develop curriculum and it is the role of the school board to implement it. The TDSB has no control over the content of the curriculum.
