The professional credentials of a Calgary elementary school ex-principal are in question for allegedly designating students as “special needs” without proper assessments in an effort to get more money for his school.

Mark Patrick Buckley is also accused of having a sexual encounter with an adult in the music room of West Dover Elementary School on a weekend, and of housing animals for three years in an unsafe “zoo-like environment” throughout the school, presenting officer Ian Stewardson said Monday.

Buckley is charged with four counts of unprofessional conduct under the Teaching Profession Act, an Alberta Teachers’ Association conduct panel heard Monday in Edmonton. Buckley didn’t attend the hearing.

On a visit to the school in December 2011, Dianne Yee, an area director for the Calgary Board of Education, said West Dover’s hallways were cluttered with algae-filled fish tanks, furniture, dying wall plants and hazardous electrical cords.

After Buckley went on a medical leave in April 2012, Yee and facilities staff found leaking hoses, caged animals living in classrooms, odiferous egg incubators in the principal’s office, and bird feces “all over the couch and the walls” in a room where staff prepared breakfast and lunch for the school nutrition program, Yee said: “It was disgusting.”

In the first few weeks of the 2011-12 school year, the number of students at West Dover who were “coded” as having a severe disability doubled to 16 from eight, Yee said, which was “very unusual.”

The Yukon government has spent $2.5 million settling sexual abuse cases since 2000

  The Yukon government has spent $2.5 million settling sexual abuse cases since 2000 The Yukon government has spent $2.5 million on settling approximately 40 sexual abuse lawsuits since 2000, the territory’s justice minister revealed in a statement. The statement from Justice Minister Tracy McPhee comes weeks after two Toronto Star stories, also published in the Yukon News, revealed that the territorial government has been quietly settling lawsuits over sexual abuse by a former school principal identified only as “J.V.” Reporter Jesse Winter uncovered at least seven lawsuits involving J.V. and found that the settlements often involved confidentiality agreements preventing the victims from talking about the settlements. The Yukon News has since identified at least one more sexual abuse case involving another government-affiliated official settled in a similar fashion. “Some cases have been dismissed or discontinued, and most have been settled.… Settlements are tailored to the individual circumstances of each case, therefore not all settlement amounts are the same,” McPhee said. The payouts would include the territorial government’s payments, money paid by insurers and, in some cases, the plaintiff’s legal costs, the statement says. The territorial government had previously told Winter — before his stories were published — that it could not disclose how many sexual abuse cases existed or how much it has spent settling them.

Yee said Buckley failed to follow board and provincial policies to assess the students’ abilities and consult with their parents. When she challenged him, he said he wanted to use the $80,000 in extra funding to hire a gym teacher, which she told him was an inappropriate use of the money.

“I believe he committed fraud,” Yee testified. “This is not an oversight, or an inexperienced principal.”

Buckley was no longer employed by the school board in 2015, Yee said.

Calgary forensic psychiatrist Dr. Kenneth Hashman testified, by phone, that Buckley told him he had brought someone to the school on a weekend to have sex.

The hearing is scheduled to continue until Thursday.
