Current News

As we prepare to launch our annual Criminal Offence Declaration process, I wish to bring to your attention that we have simplified the ICOD application with usability improvements to the sign-in process. Staff will now be able to access the ICOD application with their regular TCDSB user account and password. Once signed-in, employees will be brought directly to the “declaration” screen. As well, an auto-generated email will go out to each employee confirming receipt of the Offence Declaration. We anticipate these technical improvements to be more efficient and user-friendly for our employees.

Click for a summary of the ICOD application screen changes and the 2016/2017 Criminal Offence Declaration communication that we anticipate launching to all employees on Tuesday May 24, 2016 through Outlook and the Director’s Bulletin.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me directly.

Regards,

Rory McGuckin
