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


In today’s digital age, technology is actively used in classrooms to engage, enhance and support learning. From computers to mobile devices, tablets to interactive video games we are working to engage students with technology.

The TDSB’s Online Code of Conduct applies to all uses of technology, including social media. In it, you can learn more about:

  • Personal Safety Rules 
  • Unacceptable Sites and Materials
  • Use Guidelines
  • Prohibited Uses and Activities
  • Consequences of Inappropriate Use

Social media can enhance learning and networking, when used in a positive way. Online behaviour matters. The Student Code of Conduct and School Codes of Conduct apply to social media. Always think before posting online. The digital footprint you leave behind can stay on the Internet forever. To learn more, visit your school office or speak to your Principal.

Digital Learning Tools

The TDSB provides digital learning tools to students to support deep learning through technology. These tools include Academic Workspace, Desire to Learn, GSuite for Education and our Virtual Library which help provide students with opportunities to communicate, collaborate, inquire, research and problem solve.

Students and teachers use these tools to facilitate the learning experience and other school related activities including submitting assignments and communicating with teachers and other students on school activities. To use these tools, students are required to submit identification verification data which is collected pursuant to Education Act including s.169.1-173 and may be amended from time to time.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Students may choose to bring their own devices to school (such as smartphones and laptops). It is important to make sure that devices are used responsibly, do not interfere with learning and respect the rights of others at all times.

With your personal device, you can log in to the TDSB wifi using these instructions.
