Saskatchewan teachers recognize the importance and responsibility of the public trust they are granted every day. We are committed to the well-being and safety of children and youth, to quality teaching and professional service, and to creating a culture of learning that attends to the holistic needs of students.
As leaders in education, members of the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation have a responsibility to model positive values, practices and relationships for the children and youth we serve. Our commitments to students, communities and the profession can be found in the vision, mission and values of the Federation [version française].
Public assurance in the education system is important to all of us. We understand both the individual and collective impact that our decisions and actions can have on students and the integrity of the teaching profession. That is why the Federation has developed high standards of professional ethics and practice to guide the behaviour and practices of our members.
These standards and our disciplinary processes for our members is part of a teacher professional regulatory system in Saskatchewan that includes the additional checks and balances of the employment policies of school boards or conseil scolaire and the certification, registration and discipline of teachers by the Saskatchewan Professional Teachers Regulatory Board established by the Government of Saskatchewan in October 2015. We work collaboratively with these partners in education to promote exemplary teaching practices and foster healthy school environments for all.
