Protect our Kids: Demand the Retirement of Lancer Price

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Today, my middle child (15 yo girl) came home and mentioned that there were rumors going around school - something about her Phys Ed teacher on leave for sexual harassment. I took it in stride - there are often rumors in High School! After some quick investigation online, I found out it was TRUE.

Mr. Price has not been criminally charged - but has settled with the Commissioner for Teacher Regulation in a "Consent Resolution Agreement". (read the whole PDF here )

Here's the summary:

  • Dec 11, 2009 the School District issued a letter of discipline after he was found to have repeatedly sexually harassed colleagues
    • he was transferred out of the school and required to take counselling
  • Dec 20, 2017 the District issued another letter of discipline for sexual harassment
    • this time he was suspended without pay for 10 days, transferred out of the school and required to take counselling.
  • And to really hammer the last nail in the coffin he can't be a school counsellor any longer (anyone else absolutely flabbergasted?!?)

For this petition (my first, by the way), they say I should make it personal to get the best result. But the thing is - it isn't JUST personal. I don't want him transferred out of my kids school. I want him out of ALL schools.

DO YOU?

SOLUTION - Get someone who has authority to say, 'enough'. I don't care what the teachers' act says. At some point you have to use common sense. A guy who repeatedly (even once, in my opinion) is not just accused of sexual harassment but outwardly admits to it, should not be - captain obvious here - a school teacher.
