Central High School in southern Ontario has suspended its ninth-grade girl, after it emerged that she was allegedly having sex with another girl in her room.
The school, which has more than 1,000 students in grades 9 through 12, announced the suspension Friday, saying the school is investigating allegations of sexual misconduct.
The school is one of five in the country to have been named the worst in the nation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, a group that tracks student misconduct.
The suspension comes amid widespread sexual misconduct allegations in recent years in Ontario, where the province’s Liberal government has made sweeping reforms aimed at combating sexual misconduct and sexual harassment.
The Ontario government also announced Friday that it will require all universities to include sexual assault awareness training in their curricula.
