Ryan Imgrund, a former teacher in Ontario, is facing allegations of “sexually,” “emotionally” and “psychologically abusing students”; he resigned from the college on June 8 and did not respond to requests for comment.
During an out-of-town tournament, Imgrund messaged four students in a group message, linked to their personal phone numbers, and allegedly used a technique requiring the students to push their buttocks up against him with three of the athletes.
The notice of hearing details separate accounts of Imgrund engaging in inappropriate electronic communications with students, including sending a shirtless picture of himself, requesting and/or receiving photographs from a student that showed her in a bathing suit, and taking the same student on “long drives” alone.
Imgrund engaged in an inappropriate relationship with one student between 2017 and 2021.
The Newmarket teacher allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with a student and asked to borrow the student’s shorts for Halloween and asked a guidance counsellor to put the student in his class. He was also accused of taking students on long drives alone in his personal vehicle.
When CTV News Toronto contacted the York Catholic District School Board on Saturday regarding the allegations, they said they could not comment.
“Ryan Imgrund is not a York Catholic District School Board employee,” they said. “The YCDSB is unable to respond on an issue that is under the jurisdiction of the Ontario College of Teachers.”
