Statement: Accusations of inappropriate tweets

Today, there were public allegations made against Trustee Dee Beattie. The claim made by a local parent is suggesting that Trustee Beattie has been using a fake Twitter account to make inappropriate comments about or towards members of our wider school community.

Our Board takes these matters very seriously and we have immediately started an investigation.

Our Trustee Code of Conduct includes our commitment to ensuring that all members of the Board, in all Board-related matters, conduct themselves with proper decorum and respect for others. That鈥檚 something we鈥檙e committed to in all of our work, including through our online interactions with members of our school communities.

We will provide an update when we have more information.

Maya Russell
Chair, Board of Education
