Behavioural Expectations

The Alberta School Act states that a student shall conduct himself or herself so as to:

  • be diligent in pursuing the student’s studies;
  • attend school regularly and punctually;
  • cooperate fully with everyone [all adults] authorized by the board to provide education programs and other services;
  • comply with the rules of the school;
  • account to the student’s teachers for the student’s conduct; and
  • respect the rights of others.

We expect students to:

  • treat themselves, each other and all school personnel with courtesy and respect;
  • use positive and inclusive language;
  • model positive social behaviors in all interpersonal interactions, including online;
  • demonstrate good digital citizenship by using technology in ethically and responsible ways;
  • demonstrate concern and care for the rights and property of others;
  • respect the rights of others to learn and to teach;
  • help keep our school environment clean and litter free.

Examples of behaviours that will result in suspension include, but are not limited to:

  • possession of or active contact with a weapon on a student’s person, backpack, or in a student‘s locker;
  • use, possession of, distribution, or active contact with drugs, alcohol, or inhalants (including cigarettes, Ecigarettes, and vaping devices) in school or on school board property;
  • threats, extortion, assault or conduct that endangers others, both in-person and online;
  • use or display of improper, obscene, or abusive language;
  • theft;
  • trespassing;
  • lying to an administrator;
  • willful damage to school or other’s property;
  • personal or sexual harassment, including hazing or initiation activities, both in-person and online;
  • disruptive behaviour (ex. bouncing basketball in the halls), willful disobedience or defiance of authority, interfering with the orderly conduct of classes or the school;
  • tampering with fire alarms and safety equipment; or
  • use of pictures and videos taken on smartphones without consent.
