File a Report to the Commissioner for Teacher Regulation (as a Teacher, School or School Board)
Certified teachers have a duty to report other teachers to the Commissioner for Teacher Regulation if they are involved in misconduct that involves physical harm, sexual abuse, exploitation, or significant emotional harm to a student.
Certified teachers must also self-report to the Ministry of Education if they are criminally charged or convicted in relation to a "relevant offence" (an offence listed in Schedule 1 of the CRRA) or a "specified offence" (an offence listed in Schedule 3 of the CRRA). They must also complete a new criminal record check.
Schools and school boards
School boards or independent schools must report in writing:
- Discipline for misconduct involving physical harm, sexual abuse or exploitation, or serious emotional harm to a student
- Suspensions or dismissals (including board members)
- Other conduct or competence that breaches the standards, if it is in the public interest to do so
- Resignations, if it is in the public interest to do so
Reports are made to the Commissioner for Teacher Regulation and must be signed by the superintendent, the independent school principal, the chair of the authority operating an independent school, or the owner/operator or principal of an offshore school.
