When people complain
Complaints against members are relatively rare. When they occur, it doesn’t necessarily indicate wrongdoing. However, sometimes, people don’t live up to professional standards. When that happens, the College must take action. How? Learn about the College’s complaint process.
What a College Council member does
What would you do?
The College’s Investigation Committee reviews cases regarding the duty of student supervision. For example, in one instance, a teacher left a note on her classroom door advising students to find an available computer in the school to finish their work. The result? Several unsupervised students were found in hallways or the cafeteria.
If you were a member of the College’s Investigation Committee, what would you do? See the outcome of Duty of Student Supervision.
Myth or Fact
Myth or Fact?
Myth: All complaints against members are referred to the Investigation Committee of the College.
Fact: College staff investigates a matter ONLY if it relates to professional misconduct, incompetence or incapacity AND IS NOT frivolous, vexatious or an abuse of process.
For example, a parent’s concerns about a teacher in handling his or her child’s Individual Education Plan are best addressed by the employer.
