Ministry Re-Introduces Protecting Students Act

October 7, 2016 at 9:22 am Leave a comment

On October 5th, the Ministry announced that it was re-introducing legislation that would make the disciplinary process for the province’s educators more clear and transparent.

From the announcement:  If passed, the Protecting Students Act and subsequent regulations would improve the Ontario College of Teachers’ investigation and disciplinary processes, reduce the potential for conflicts of interest and help protect children, students and teachers by:

  • Ensuring a teacher’s certificate is automatically revoked if he or she has been found guilty of sexual abuse or acts relating to child pornography
  • Requiring employers, including school boards, to inform the college when they have restricted a teacher’s duties or dismissed him or her for professional misconduct
  • Allowing the college to share information with the school board or employer if the subject of a complaint poses an immediate risk to a student or child
  • Requiring the college to publish all decisions from its discipline committee
  • Improving timelines for the investigation and consideration of complaints.
