Our CBE Student Code of Conduct and CBE Progressive Student Discipline regulation apply to all of our students. They outline the roles and expectations for our students to promote positive and inclusive learning environments, help students to develop empathy and become good citizens both within and outside of the school community, and explain the consequences when a student’s disruptive behaviour negatively affects the learning environment.

Our CBE Employee Code of Conduct applies to all of our employees. The CBE maintains high standards for the conduct of its employees, and expects them to conduct themselves honestly and with integrity and exercise common sense, good judgement and discretion.​​​​

Code of Conduct

The Calgary Board of Education is committed to providing students and staff with a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects diversity and fosters a sense of belonging.

Our CBE Code of Conduct and CBE Progressive Discipline regulations apply to all of our students. They outline the roles and expectations for our students to promote positive and inclusive learning environments, help students to develop empathy and become good citizens both within and outside of the school community, and explain the consequences when a student’s disruptive behaviour negatively affects the learning environment.

Teachers and students will review these documents in the first weeks of school and refer to them over the course of the year. Students and families are expected to be familiar with the roles, rights and responsibilities as outlined.

Earl Grey School Rights and Responsibilities

At Earl Grey School we recognize the uniqueness of all of our students and believe that inside each individual there is a leader. We are proud to say that we are now officially recognized by Franklin Covey Education as a “Leader in Me” school. “The Leader in Me” is a school-wide process that develops staff and students as leaders and thereby transforms the culture and performance of the school. Leader in Me Schools seamlessly integrate leadership development into daily curriculum, activities, and systems and create a culture where every student is encouraged to set and achieve meaningful goals, be a positive influence on others, and use his or her individual gifts to better the world.

For the past 5 years we have used the 7 Habits for Happy Kids by Sean Covey with the following guidelines:

  • Be Proactive – You’re in Charge
  • Begin with the End in Mind – Have a Plan
  • Put First Things First – Put the important things first
  • Think Win-Win – Everyone Can Win
  • Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood – Listen Before You Talk
  • Synergize – Together is Better
  • Sharpen the Saw – Balance Feels Best

When students follow the above guidelines, they will “do what is right even when no one is looking”. Teachers reinforce this through class meetings to teach, model and reinforce the habits and to encourage students to live as leaders. Discipline becomes a matter of following the principles contained in the 7 Habits. We will document behaviour problems that, in the opinion of the school, exceed acceptable limits and communicate with parents via phone call or agenda message. Documentation can include Student Respect Forms and Speak and Act with Care Forms.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7.
