Behaviour

Entry and Exit Expectations

As a good citizen, I will support my learning and respect my learning space by:

  • Attending school regularly and arriving on time.
  • Respectfully entering and exiting the school through assigned doors.
  • Removing outdoor shoes when entering the building.
  • Meeting at a pre-arranged meeting place outside the school.
  • Obtaining permission from a staff member to enter the school before bell times.
  • Going directly home once dismissed.

Student Problem Solving

Students are expected to take responsibility for their behaviour and learn ways to control and change their behaviour. The focus of all interventions with students will be based on helping them to solve their problems and be accountable for the choices they make. 

Minor Offenses

Staff members will handle minor offenses promptly. Students will assess incidents of poor judgment on their part and together with the adult, create an appropriate action plan.

Major Offenses

Major offenses are<those<="" span=""> behaviours which threaten the orderly function of the school or are deemed unsafe to self or others. These may include repeated defiance of authority, physical conflict, and/or continuous disruptive behaviour. The consequences for major offenses will be decided for each individual case. Continued issues of major misconduct will result in a progression of consequences which may include in-school suspension, at home suspension, or assistance through out-of-school agencies.

Emphasis will be on <the<="" span="">the implementation and monitoring of a problem solving process. Other actions may include:

  • Parent contact as required.
  • Development   of   an   activity   to   build   positive relationships.
  • Assignment of an alternate activity.
  • Suspension of privileges.
  • Temporary relocation of a student from their class to an alternate location in the school.
  • Student Suspension for serious misconduct. 

School will communicate concerns to parents.
