As mobile device usage increases, so do the demands on the TDSB network, which was not designed to support this level high of activity. Performance has diminished to the point where tasks such as daily attendance, registering students, generating & printing report cards and submitting information to the Ministry have become almost impossible to complete.
Effective May 9th, to help alleviate congestion and improve performance of important services, the TDSB is implementing the following interim measure district-wide until June 30, 2017:
- Blocking access to Snapchat, Instagram and Netflix (effective May 9) on both wired and Wi-Fi networks for staff & students in all locations. Traffic to these three sites account for approximately 20% of TDSB’s daily network activity.
This interim measure is intended to assist all schools in completing their required, operational tasks while minimizing the impact on teaching & learning.
North Toronto’s Mental Health Awareness Week was March 27-31. This was followed by Charity Week April 3-7. This year’s charity is The Maddie Project.
