initiative in greater detail.
We aim to provide a response within a semester. It could take longer to reach an agreement, if a proposal is accepted. The length of time in assessment depends on the scope or complexity of the initiative being proposed, and if the programming is addressing an identified educational need prioritized by the TDSB.

The TDSB insurance program does not extend to its
educational partners. Partners are responsible for maintaining their own
insurance, to insure against civil litigation alleging professional errors,
omissions or charges.
Depending upon the programming being provided, some educational partnership agreements
will require an insurance certificate to be provided prior to finalizing a
partnership agreement. The certificate must indicate that the partner has a
minimum of $2 million liability insurance naming the TDSB as “additionally insured”, effective for the duration of the partnership agreement. To
assist partners in meeting the liability insurance requirement, the TDSB has
contracted Aon insurance brokers to provide insurance. Aon insurance brokers offer our partners the benefit of
insurance expertise by dedicated insurance agents.
Please note the following process: Aon
will provide a quote to the partner directly. If the partner accepts the
quote from Aon, all insurance-related fees will be settled with Aon directly,
after which the insurance certificate will be emailed to the partner and the
TDSB Central Partnership Office at the same time. Partners are free to obtain
liability insurance coverage from other vendors. However, the insurance
certificate must meet the requirements specified above.
accepted educational programming partner agencies with current agreements only: upon
scheduling the program or service, the school or TDSB Contact
department provides the partner with a Purchase Order Number. The partner ensures that the deliverables are completed as scheduled. Following program or service delivery, the partner creates
an invoice. Invoices must indicate the Vendor Number they've been
assigned, as per the terms of their agreement, and the Purchase Order
Number, as per the school or department receiving the program or service.
Invoices are emailed by the Partner to email@example.com and cc:ed to the TDSB Contact/s.
Please check out our Partnership Opportunities brochure, as your request may have been considered as a business or facilities arrangement. If you would still like the proposal for educational programming during the instructional time of a school day to be reconsidered, contact the Educational Partnership Office and they will send you a Closure Reconsideration Form that needs to be completed in order to prompt a decision review.
Please see our video on Educational Programming Partnerships before contacting the Educational Partnership Office. It all begins with a proposal submission. Afterwards, you will be able to view the status of your file as it moves through the assessment process, and/or when your partnership comes up for review.
