Judicial Record Verification for Students in the Bachelor of Education Programs
Quebec's Education Act, section 261.0.2, grants school boards the right to verify the judicial record of any person regularly in contact with minors, and this includes student teachers. Each school board or private school may have its own administrative procedures for verification. Students are responsible for complying with their request. Anyone unable to obtain the required security clearance will not be permitted to undertake their Field Experiences, which is a mandatory requirement of the program, and consequently would be required to withdraw from the program.
