The Durham District School Board (DDSB) confirms that a teacher most recently at Roland Michener Public School in Ajax has been charged by the Durham Regional Police Service with sexual assault and sexual interference. The teacher in question was at da Vinci Public School in Ajax the previous school year (2017–2018). She also worked at Vincent Massey Public School (2016-2017) and Dr. SJ Phillips (in the fall of 2017). The DDSB is cooperating with the Durham Children's Aid Society and the Durham Regional Police Service during their respective investigations. Each school is sending communications home to parents and guardians today to provide an update. We will continue to work with our community partners until this investigation is concluded. All students and parents with information have been directed to contact the officer in charge of the investigation.
