Student Expectations

The basic purpose of discipline is to develop, as far as possible, in all students, the capacity for self-control.  Reasonable behaviour is essential to help ensure student learning and social and emotional growth.

Provincial Law states:  

Section 31 of the Education Act states that a student, as a partner in education, has the responsibility to:

  • (a) attend school regularly and punctually
  • (b) be ready to learn and actively engage in and diligently pursue the student’s education
  • (c) ensure that the student’s conduct contributes to a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects diversity and fosters a sense of belonging
  • (d) respect the rights of others in the school
  • (e) refrain from, report and not tolerate bullying or bullying behaviour directed toward others in the school, whether or not it occurs within the school building, during the school day or by electronic means
  • (f) comply with the rules of the school and the policies of the board
  • (g) co-operate with everyone authorized by the board to provide education programs and other services
  • (h) be accountable to the student’s teachers and other school staff for the student’s conduct
  • (i) positively contribute to the student’s school and community
School Discipline Procedures

School staff have worked to put together a comprehensive School Discipline Procedures document. Students will be dealt with according to their age, capacity to understand their actions, and individual circumstances. The following procedures may be used at the discretion of the School Staff and Administration and according to the Discipline Procedures Plan:

  • verbal and nonverbal warnings and cues
  • proximity to student
  • time-out or removal from activities
  • Reflection forms
  • parent contact/meetings
  • detentions
  • suspensions – In-School or Out-of-School
