International Languages and African Heritage Programs

In an increasingly globalized world, it is important to set our
students on the path to being active global citizens. This fall, the
International Languages – Elementary / African Heritage Program
will be offering language classes to students (TDSB and non TDSB)
in Kindergarten to Grade 8. Students will take part in a remote/at
home learning. Classes run 2.5 hours, one day a week. Students will
have live face-to-face interactive lessons with their instructor and
other students for approximately 30 minutes. Remaining time will
be spent on independent work. Activities will be focused on building
student’s abilities in oral communication, reading and writing.

Please note that a minimum of 23 students is required to open a language class.

Classes start October 2020. Cost is free while the program is offered remotely.

Parents as Partners Conference Postponed

For many years, the TDSB has hosted the Parents as Partners Conference for families in collaboration with Community Advisory Committees, Parent Involvement Advisory Committee, Special Education Advisory Committee, staff and community agencies. After consulting with our partners, a decision has been made to postpone this conference until fall 2020. The current labour context has made it difficult to ensure that the conference will maintain the breadth of options and offer participants a similar experience to previous years and concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19) may negatively impact attendance. The planning team is committed to hosting another comprehensive and rewarding conference in fall 2020.
