  2. The SEA or CEO must then record the complaint by writing a report of sexual misconduct involving the student. This report will be stored in the student’s confidential records.
  3. In response to the complaint or report, the SEA or the CEO will conduct whatever enquiries and/or investigations necessary including contacting the Kelowna Police Department within 5 days.
  4. The SEA or CEO will then determine if the complaint or report is substantiated. If it is substantiated that an illegal act took place, he/she will contact the Kelowna Police Department. If the act was not illegal, he/she will determine the consequences of further misconduct, suspend the student from classes and/or residence, or dismiss the student from the school and/or residence following the refund policy.
