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.

Remote Learning and Well-Being in the TDSB

Remote learning continues for more than 240,000 students in the Toronto District School Board. The Government of Ontario has announced that all publicly-funded schools, including those at the TDSB, will remain closed for the rest of the 2019-20 school year, as part of ongoing efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Remote Learning in the TDSB

School closures and remote learning have had a significant impact on our lives and have dramatically changed how we connect, collaborate, learn and support each other. But our TDSB community has come together in this challenging, uncertain and difficult environment, and we have moved forward and worked to support one another.

Ensuring our students and community were supported with the basics in the beginning was critical. We rerouted nutrition funds, delivered PPE to frontline workers and delivered nearly 60,000 technology devices to families who needed it so students could continue to connect. And TDSB staff reached out – and continue to do so -- to more than 240,000 students and their families to connect, check in and support remote learning.

The role parents and families have played in this work and your child’s continued learning is not only critical, it’s extraordinary. We are so grateful for your support and the support of our entire TDSB community.

Our work continues to be guided by five principles:

  • Prioritize the health and well-being of everyone.
  • Focus on the continuation of learning in a variety of ways.
  • Maintain relationships and connection to one another.
  • Engage all students, especially those who have historically been underserved and those who may not be able to participate effectively in remote learning for a variety of reasons.
  • Build staff capacity to be effective in this remote space.
