admitted to professional misconduct. Mr. Dutt was employed as
a teacher at a secondary school when the incidences took place.
Firstly, Mr. Dutt accompanied a female student to a medical
appointment for treatment of depression with knowledge that the
student was concealing the appointment from her parent.
Secondly, Mr. Dutt disregarded his principalís instructions to
sleep in a different hotel room than the female chaperone during
a field trip. In addition, Mr. Dutt behaved inappropriately with
one of his Grade 12 students by giving her a piggyback ride;
massaging her feet and lower legs while she had her legs
stretched over his lap; applying Vicks VapoRub to her neck and
throat while she was sitting between his legs and again while
she was lying on her bed in the hotel room; and slept with this
student on the same bed under a blanket. Thirdly, Mr. Dutt paid
extensive and unsolicited attention to a Grade 12 student by
attending at her place of employment; buying her perfume and
lunch; and permitting her to sit on his lap in the student
council room while alone. On September 4, 2008, the Preliminary
Investigation Sub-Committee approved the Consensual Resolution
Agreement under which Mr. Dutt agreed, that should he, in the
future, apply for a new teaching certificate, his application
will be referred to the Fitness Investigation Sub-Committee.
