School is where Jordan Manners was shot last year
The former principal and vice-principals at C.W. Jefferys, the school where Jordan Manners was shot and killed last year, are the first ever in the Toronto board to be charged under the Child and Family Services Act for failing to report a serious incident against a student, the board said yesterday.
And the Ontario Principals’ Council says no principals in the province have ever been charged with failing to report an alleged assault of a student by other students.
The three administrators — principal Charis Newton-Thompson and vice-principals Stan Gordon and Silvio Tallevi — were charged by police late last year with failing to report an alleged sexual assault on a student at the school.
They are to appear in court Feb.13.
