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 has created a system-wide Student Code of Conduct (Administrative Regulation 6005) with input from students, parents and CBE employees. This code of conduct applies to all CBE schools. Families are encouraged to follow this link and ensure they have read the CBE Student Code of Conduct (Administrative Regulation 6005) and Progressive Discipline Policy (Administrative Regulation 6006).
In accordance with the above, Panorama Hills School maintains a whole school approach that utilizes a continuum of intervention, supports, and consequences to address in appropriate and unacceptable student behaviour and builds upon strategies that promote positive behaviours contributing to a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment.
We believe in the responsibility model of discipline. By implementing logical and consistent consequences, individuals become responsible and caring members of the community. By providing opportunities to address their behaviour and choices, they will learn how they impact others while still maintaining their dignity.
Generally, the following sequence of events outlines the outcomes if a student demonstrates repeated infractions of the CBE Student code of conduct at Panorama Hills School. However it should be noted that the progressive student discipline administrative regulation provides the opportunity to enter at any point depending upon the situation and the individual. Behaviours will be addressed and responded to accordingly depending upon the situation.
