Daily Update - December 13

In an effort to remain fully transparent, we will continue to send daily emails to keep you informed of the school’s actions and next steps. 

Board of Directors Announcement
The St. Michael’s College School Board of Directors issued a press release today, announcing the members of the Respect and Culture Review committee. This external panel will be tasked with conducting a thorough independent examination of the social practices, policies, and compliance at the school, through a variety of interviews with current and past members of our community. The panel’s final report is due in the summer of 2019. 

Respect & Culture Review Website
Today the school launched www.smcsrespectandculture.com, a ‘micro site’ containing information pertaining to the purpose, mandate, and related news on the third-party Respect and Culture Review at SMCS. 

Cancellation of Football and Basketball Seasons 
We have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the Junior and Varsity football seasons for the 2019-20 academic year and cancel the 2018-19 Varsity basketball season. The Administration, Faculty, and Students are carefully preparing to resume the co-curricular programme in January 2019 including all events involving external groups, teams, and public performances.

Action Plan
Our school website has been updated with specific measures the school leadership has put in place since these incidents occurred, and what it plans to introduce as part of the Action Plan, moving forward. These updates can be found here.
