Another B.C. teacher has been stripped of their teaching certificate for having sex with a former student.
A B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation ruling published Tuesday revealed that the teacher, whose name and gender were not released, was employed at an unspecified B.C. high school last September when they started a sexual relationship with a student they had taught through Grades 10-12.
According to ruling, the unnamed student, who graduated last June, had spent a significant amount of their Grade 12 year with the teacher, both during and outside of school hours.
Prior to this relationship, the commissioner said the teacher had also engaged in boundary violations with other students at the school, such that the students viewed them more as a friend than as a teacher.
The teacher was fired by the school district and their teacher’s certificate, which they first obtained in 2014, was cancelled.
The teacher further agreed they would not re-apply for a new certificate for a period of 15 years.
