Principal/Designate

This section of the Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines has been developed for principals/designates. This section includes the duties of care, checklists, and resources specific to the principal/designate role in ensuring the health and safety of their students during physical activities.

Please note: a designate can be a vice principal, another teacher or at the secondary level it can be a department head or athletic director. Based on school board policy/contractual stipulations that clearly outlines a designate’s role, the principal may assign a task to a designate.
