A teacher charged in the death of a high school student who drowned during a field trip to Algonquin park will be in court today.
15-year-old Jeremiah Perry was on a trip to Algonquin Provincial Park with other students from C.W. Jefferys Collegiate Institute in July 2017, when he went for a swim and vanished underwater.
A police dive team found the boy's body the next day.
The Toronto District School Board said Perry and 14 other students among the 32 on the trip had failed a mandatory swim test.
Nicholas Mills is charged with criminal negligence causing death.
