Notes on Translation
The electronic translation service on the Toronto Catholic District School Board's website is hosted by Google Translate. 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 50 languages, although an impressive number, this does not capture all languages or dialects. The basic translation's goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material.
The Toronto Catholic District School Board does not guarantee the quality, accuracy or completeness of any translated information. Before you act on translated information, the Board encourages you to confirm any facts that are important to you and affect any decisions you may make.
The Toronto Catholic District School Board is committed to parent, family and community engagement, and it is our hope that by providing this tool on our website that we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English and thereby enabling better engagement in public education.
Draft Parent and Student Charter of Rights
In February of 2014 the Board of Trustees passed the following two-part motion:
a) that the board of Trustees approve the formation of a special ad-hoc committee to develop a student/parent charter or bill of rights to report back to Board by August 2014;
b) that this special ad-hoc committee include representation from staff, trustees, parents & students.
Through 2014 and 2015 the special ad-hoc committee worked to produce a Draft Parent Charter of Rights and a Draft Student Charter of Rights which was approved by Trustees for public consultation.
