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

McKenzie Towne School Expectation Policy

The purpose of our expectation policy is to develop a common understanding among school staff, parents and students. The intent of any action taken is to learn from our 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 behavior by school staff, students, and parents has resulted in students knowing, and following,
expectations at McKenzie Towne School.

Everyone Does Their Part

The teacher establishes clear expectations, models appropriate behavior 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 a safe and appropriate learning environment. Students model appropriate behavior for others in the school. The parent supports, cooperates, provides input and models behavior and attitudes conducive to their child’s learning.
