A District School Board of Niagara trustee has been accused of breaching the school board's code of conduct.

Kate Baggott is the representative for St. Catharines and Niagara-on-the-Lake.

She told the St. Catharines Standard earlier this year, that she'd like the Education Director to undergo a performance review.

Baggott didn't get permission from the board Chair before the interview. 

She is also accused to breaching another term in the code of conduct; which states trustees should discharge their duties in a manner that will inspire public confidence.

This was all discussed at a DSBN board meeting earlier this week.
