Code Of Conduct

Introduction

  • A school is a place that promotes responsibility, respect, civility and academic excellence in a safe learning and teaching environment.
  • All students, parents, teachers and staff have the right to be safe, and feel safe, in the school community. With this right comes the responsibility to be law-abiding citizens and to be accountable for actions, which put the safety of others or oneself at risk.
  • The Code of Conduct specifies the mandatory consequences for student actions that do not comply with the provincially defined standards of behaviour. The standards of behaviour apply not only to students, but also to all school members, i.e. individuals involved in the school system- parents or guardians, volunteers, teachers and other staff members – whether they are on school property, on school buses or at school-authorized events or activities.

Guiding Principles

  • All participants involved in the school - students parents or guardians, volunteers, teachers and other staff members- are included in this Code of Conduct whether they are on school property or at school-authorized events or activities.
  • All members of the school community are to be treated with respect and dignity, especially persons in positions of authority.
  • Responsible citizenship involves appropriate participation in the civic life of the school community. Active and engaged citizens are aware of their rights, but more importantly, they accept responsibility for protecting their rights and the rights of others.
  • Members of the school community are expected to use non-violent means to resolve conflict. Physically aggressive behaviour is not a responsible way to interact with others.
  • The possession, use or threatened use of any object to injure another person endangers the safety of oneself and others.
  • Alcohol and illegal drugs are addictive and present a health hazard. Schools will work cooperatively with police, drug and alcohol agencies to promote prevention strategies and, where necessary, respond to school members who are in possession of, or under the influence of, alcohol or illegal drugs.
  • Insults, disrespect, and other hurtful acts disrupt learning and teaching in a school community. Members of the school community have a responsibility to maintain an environment where conflict and difference can be addressed in a manner characterized by respect and civility.
