Incident Reporting

The most difficult part of reporting incidents is knowing how and when to report. There are three major types of incident reporting that teachers could be involved with:

Safe Schools Incident Reporting (Bill 157 form) (Completed by teacher on paper)
  • Must be completed when you witness or have knowledge of an incident which could lead to suspension or expulsion.
  • Form available in school office or on District 13 website.
 
Employee Violent Incident Reporting (completed by teacher on-line)
  • Must be completed when a student has exhibited violent behaviours that could have caused injury to the employee (whether or not an injury actually occurred).
  • Form available on the portal under quick links --> Employee Self Serve --> Forms online (on left side of screen) --> Employee Violent Incident Form.

Workplace Injury Reporting (completed by principal with teacher input)
  • Must be completed whenever you are injured at work.
  • It is important to report the injury even if you think the injury is minor, just in case it does turn into something more serious.

So what kind of report do I have to submit?  Let’s look at some examples:

Follow the same reporting procedure for all students whether they are identified (IEP) or not.

When in doubt, contact the District Office for assistance.

Call 911 anytime you deem the situation to be an emergency.
Make sure you inform the school office after you call 911.
