  • Bausback, Kirk Herbert

    admitted to professional misconduct. In 2005, while employed as a teacher at a secondary school, Mr. Bausback was responsible for a day-long field trip to Victoria with 128 students and ten supervisors. During the field trip, he used the field trip funds collected to purchase alcoholic beverages for himself on four occasions, and the supervisors, one of which was under-age. In addition, Mr. Bausback misrepresented to BC Ferries the number of students on the field trip in order to reduce the transportation costs. Subsequently, Mr. Bausback did not properly account for the misappropriated funds, but later admitted to his inappropriate conduct and repaid the sum of approximately $1200, which represented the field trip funds that were previously unaccounted for. On October 5, 2009, the Conduct Review Sub-Committee accepted the Statement of Agreed Facts and Disposition and agreed that Mr. Bausback be suspended for a period of five months, retroactively, commencing upon the date of the Sub-Committee’s approval of the Agreement. Therefore, his suspension ended October 5, 2009. Further, that Mr. Bausback adhere to a Relapse Prevention Monitoring Agreement with respect to alcohol dependence.

  • Coren, Mary Ann Theresa

    admitted to professional misconduct. Between September 2005 and June 2006, Ms. Coren used discipline techniques, which in hindsight she now acknowledges were inappropriate despite her best intentions. While employed at an elementary school as a teacher of nine special needs students, ages five to eight years, Ms. Coren applied excessive force to children in an attempt to catch or restrain them, physically forced them back into their seats, manipulated their fingers, slapped hands, twisted students arms behind their backs, restrained a student on a chair with a belt, kicked a student’s legs out to force the student to a seated position, and removed the pants and shirt of a student who tore at his clothes and threw his shoes. In October 2006, Ms. Coren was charged criminally with four counts of assault against her students but all charges were either stayed or discharged. Ms. Coren stated that she found herself in extraordinarily challenging circumstances with a class of children who were extremely difficult to teach and who often displayed violent behaviour. In an attempt to deal with the issues she encountered with her students, Ms. Coren repeatedly sought guidance and assistance within the school and with the school district. As a result, she said that policies relative to situations such as that which she found herself in were either nonexistent or not clearly communicated to her and that she did not receive adequate direction or support in the circumstances. On August 26, 2010 the Conduct Review Sub-Committee accepted the Statement of Agreed Facts and Disposition and agreed that Ms. Coren receive a reprimand.

Mr. Luscher was employed as a teacher-on-call and was on assignment at a secondary school when, during working hours, Mr. Luscher used a school laptop computer to access inappropriate material on the internet, using the school’s wireless internet connection. His internet activity included accessing websites with adult content, which was erotic and sexualized in nature, and entering into interactive online chatting with at least one individual on one of these sites. According to the school district’s investigation, approximately 200 images were viewed. At the end of the school day, Mr. Luscher deleted the internet history and returned the computer to the school. On November 23, 2010, the Preliminary Investigation Sub-Committee approved the Consent Resolution Agreement in which Mr. Luscher agreed to receive a reprimand.
