A B.C. teacher has been stripped of his license for professional misconduct involving two high school students.
During the 2005-2006 school year, James Hugh Tracey took a leave of absence from the Delta School District to teach in another province.
Five years later in September of 2011 he admitted to the B.C. College of Teachers that he had been charged with two counts of sexual misconduct.
During the time he taught outside B.C. he allowed students from the school to come to his home and ‘hang out.’
Students showed up intoxicated and Tracey formed inappropriate relationships with two female students, aged 15 and 17.
According to the Teachers Regulation Branch, he was suspended and eventually fired in 2014.
This month Tracey entered into a consent resolution with the college stating he will not be able to apply for a teaching certificate for a minimum of 10 years.
