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.
2017-2018 Budget Consultation
The Ontario Education Act (Section 232), requires all school boards to submit a balanced budget to the Ministry of Education by June of each year. We are pleased to invite all TCDSB stakeholders to participate in a consultation session that will help the Board finalize its 2017- 2018 budget.
Due to the significant cost and expenditure savings made over the past two years, the Board is in a much better financial situation as we evaluate options to produce a balanced 2017-2018 budget.
To achieve our goal of avoiding any potential impact in our classrooms, the Board will use $7.5M of System Priorities funding provided by the Ministry of Education to offset reductions of $8.3M originally estimated in our Multi-Year Deficit Recovery Plan. The remaining $800,000 will come from the suggested revenue generating opportunities identified in the Budget Survey below.
We welcome your feedback and comments. A number of information resources are listed on this page to assist you in this consultation process.
Please help us by completing the short survey today. Survey ends April 26, 2017 at Noon.
