If you’re worried about student discipline, you can use our tool to track your child’s school.
Now that parents are wondering whether they’ll need to review a child’s disciplinary record at their school, there’s a way to learn exactly how many students were arrested or disciplined or how many detentions took place last year.
Most people don’t know about this tool, but it’s online, ready for them.
Find out who is making calls at your school — and whether it was against policy
Say you live in Collingwood, Ont., for example, and your child has been in trouble at school. You can check to see if other students have been arrested or disciplined in the past.
Or say you live in Blackburn-Lochwood and your child is in charge of the cafeteria. You can check whether other students have been disciplined in the past.
Or say you live in Orillia, Ont., and you have one or more children in your household. You can check to see if your child’s school was the location of one or more school exclusions — the ones that get reported to Ontario’s Ministry of Education.
Are there complaints from parents?
To look at your child’s record, you need to enter a name or address in the box at the top. And if you want to know if other parents are complaining about your child or whether there are complaints, you can enter that as well.
It can be a helpful way to get more detail about child discipline, so you don’t have to go in and read off a big list.
You also don’t have to worry about data not being accessible. We’ve included a transcript of the conversation below:
