Progressive Student Discipline

The purpose of the Calgary Board of Education’s Administrative Regulation 6005 - Student Code of Conduct is as follows:

  • To support the creation of welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments for students that respect diversity and foster a sense of belonging for all members of our school community.
  • To create the conditions to help students engage in their learning.
  • To identify key responsibilities and accountabilities for CBE students.
  • To outline the expectations for responses to student behavior.
  • To provide guidelines and expectations supporting an effective school-wide approach to progressive school discipline.

Progressive Student Discipline means a whole school approach that utilizes a continuum of intervention, supports, and consequences to address inappropriate and unacceptable student behavior and builds upon strategies that promote positive behaviours contributing to a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment.

The following principles apply:

  • CBE guidelines are in compliance with requirements from Alberta Education.
  • CBE is committed to providing students and staff with welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments that foster a sense of belonging and respect diversity.
  • Schools are expected to support personal development, character and citizenship by managing discipline through a progression of proactive, preventative, and restorative strategies.
  • Responses to student behaviour include a consistent, universal school-wide approach, based on fair and predictable responses to negative behaviours.
  • Progressive student discipline strategies focus on support and corrective actions that provide opportunities to learn while focusing on improving behaviour.
  • Students and staff are expected to model and reinforce socially responsible behaviours.
  • Students and staff shall be treated fairly and with dignity.
