Vernon  

Vice-principal caught cheating

A Vernon vice-principal has had his teaching certificate suspended for one month after admitting to altering students grades.

Tony Martin Dolinar, a man with over 20 years of teaching experience, was employed at Vernon Secondary School when he electronically changed a student’s grades in four courses over the past two school years.

He increased the percentage marks in three classes during the 2012-13 school year, allowing that person to receive an academic award, and then changed the electronic grades for that same student once again for one class during the 2013-14 school year.

When another teacher called him out this past November, Dolinar denied the allegations to both that teacher and the principal.

He was then suspended without pay on Dec. 19, 2013 and resigned from the district on Jan. 31, 2014.

Dolinar later admitted to changing the grades through a consent resolution agreement with the BC Teacher’s registration branch.

His suspension begins June 1.
