KB and TM v Toronto District School Board and Louie Papathanasakis (principal) Emery Collegiate Institute (Court file 55/06) [School transfers]

Court: Ontario Divisional Court, 2006

JFCY intervened as a “friend of the court” at a judicial review at the Ontario Divisional Court. Lawyers at JFCY would have argued that a principal and school board cannot use powers under ss. 265 (1)(m) and 305 of the Education Act to transfer students to another school once the student’s suspensions have been completed and they would otherwise return to their home school. The judicial review also concerned whether the principal, and the school board, acted fairly when they used the provisions ss.265 (1)(m) and 305 to transfer the student for safety reasons.

This case was resolved outside of court.
