TDSB Connect


Starting for the 2020-2021 school year, BALC Secondary School has replaced its paper student agenda with the TDSB Connect APP



TDSB Connect App

TDSB has launched a new online app to help high school students stay connected and organized.

It is designed with secondary students in mind, helping them stay organized with school work, see their daily school calendar and stay in touch with their school community. By logging in with their TDSB school ID, their timetable is automatically populated allowing them to easily add notes, goals and details to each course.

Schools can also share announcements, updates, local calendars and more to help students stay connected and informed.

Subsequent phases include features such as the student safety line, notifications and opportunities to share your voice, and also a version for elementary students and families.

The TDSB Connects App supports our commitment to be more digitally-friendly, reduce paper and find new and engaging ways to connect with students to support their success.   

Download the app now at the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
