Student 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. With this in mind, the CBE is creating a system-wide Student Code of Conduct (Administrative Regulation 6005) with input from students, parents and CBE employees. This new code of conduct will apply to all CBE schools, and beginning in the 2016/17 school year, individual schools will no longer have their own codes of conduct. All CBE students are expected to abide by the new system regulation, which will be posted to our Administrative Regulation page http://www.cbe.ab.ca/about-us/...
Our School Commitment at King George - We are peaceful with our words and our actions. We are gentle with people and things. We are respectful of people and things. We are enthusiastic learners and always work with excellence, knowing that our main goal is to learn French.
This school commitment is the foundation of our discipline policy. All students are expected to behave in a caring manner towards each other at all times. In keeping with the values of the Calgary Board of Education, we are committed to providing our students and staff with a safe and caring school environment. Students are encouraged to resolve issues that may occur by discussing positive or negative experiences during our school-wide character time. The ultimate goal is to create students who are self-disciplined and reflective about their behaviors and actions. We work toward creating a safe, caring and high performing learning community where students use French at all times during the school day.
Unique Student’s Commitment at King George School - Speaking French in class is essential to my competency development in the language. Furthermore, it is a classroom expectation. If I don’t know how to say something, I have the tools to ask in French. The more I practice the language, the easier it becomes. I am committed to growing as a French language learner.
The standard way to deal with student conflict is through character circle. Parents should encourage their child to use this forum for resolving conflicts. The teacher is responsible for making sure each child’s concern is heard. If a student is involved in issues that have not been able to be resolved such as : conduct that endangers others or encouraging such conduct, disruptive behavior, willful disobedience or defiance of authority, interfering with the conduct of classes or the school, an administrator will be involved in the process. Parent(s) will be noti-fied and each incident will be treated on its own merit.
On The Bus
The behavior of students on the bus is generally the bus driver’s responsibility. A set of guidelines is provided by Southland Transportation and distributed to students and parents. If a student continues to misbehave or if the student commits a major infraction of the rules, the bus driver will complete a Bus Misconduct Report for the school administration. The administration will then contact parents regarding the problems.The Principal may suspend a student from riding the school bus should behavior warrant such action.
