Jaques Normandeau, a former teacher at Pointe-des-Chenes school in Ste. Anne, Manitoba has been charged with sexual assault and sexual interference involving a minor.

Normandeau is out on bail with several strict conditions. The school district has also confirmed with the police that he is no longer teaching at the school. He will be required to appear before the court in Steinbach on June 16 to answer to the charges against him.

According to local news, "the Franco-Manitoban School Division (DSFM) [the district in which school the alleged abuse took place] has sent out communication to parents and caregivers of students stating that the division is aware of the arrest of a teacher at Pointe-des-Chenes school."

Said communication also indicated that the school has put "all appropriate measures ... in place" in order to make sure that the environment at the school, and all other schools in the DSFM, are "healthy and safe."

The DSFM refused to comment further to the media regarding the matter.

Arrests, trials and convictions of school teachers who have sexually assaulted students are becoming more and more common, in Canada and elsewhere.

This is an ongoing investigation, and, as such, individuals who may have more information regarding this incident or any other pertinent to the case please contact the Ste. Anne police.
