  • Time: 2:00 – 4:00PM
  • Location: Google Education Learning Lab

School board members and school administrators must be trained on and adhere to the ethical standards in the School Ethics Act and the Code of Ethics for School Board Members. Most regulated professions require ethics training and are subject to a code of ethics. The teaching profession is a notable exception to this general rule, leaving teachers ill-prepared to navigate the ethical conundrums attendant to working with children. This session will discuss how ethics training can help facilitate appropriate boundaries between teachers and students, as well as between staff members.

Questions are welcome throughout the Legal Clinic.
