The expectations for student conduct and the approach to discipline at Janet Johnstone School, described below, have been developed to be consistent with the above regulations.
The purpose of our expectation policy is to develop a common understanding among school staff, parents/guardians and students. The intent of any action taken is to help students learn from their mistakes. An atmosphere of cooperation, collaboration and understanding between all parties is the most productive way of making this learning effective. A consistent approach to behaviour by school staff, students, and parents/guardians has resulted in students knowing, and following expectations at Janet Johnstone School.
Everyone Does Their Part
The teacher establishes clear expectations, models appropriate behaviour and attitudes, reinforces correct behavior, and is alert to the student who needs assistance.
The student is aware, understands and follows expectations to help maintain safe and appropriate learning environment. Students model appropriate behavior for others in the school.
The parent/guardian supports, cooperates, provides input and models behaviour and an attitude conducive to their child’s learning.
