​​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

Johnson, students and staff are expected to model and reinforce socially responsible and respectful behaviors’ so that teaching and learning can take place in a safe and caring environment. Our school discipline policy – AR 6006: Progressive Student Discipline – addresses unacceptable student behavior through:

a. the use of disciplinary action and
b. provides an opportunity for critical learning in the areas of:

(d) while travelling to and from school;
(e) on vehicles used for the transportation of students to and from school and school activities; and
