Former Vernon school principal boosted student’s grades
VERNON — A former secondary school principal in Vernon has lost his teaching licence for one month after admitting he covertly boosted a student’s grades.
Tony Dolinar has already resigned as vice-principal of Vernon Secondary after being suspended without pay late last year — but his teaching certificate has now been lifted for 30-days effective
An investigation found Dolinar raised the grades of an unnamed student, affecting four courses taken by the student — and resulting in the youth being eligible for an academic award in 2012-2013, that would not otherwise have been given.
A teacher raised concerns about the grades last November prompting the investigation.
