Student Code of Conduct
A school is a place that promotes responsibility, respect, civility and academic excellence in a safe learning and teaching environment. All students, parents, teachers and staff have the right to be safe, and feel safe, in their school community. With this right comes the responsibility to be law-abiding citizens and to be accountable for actions that put at risk the safety of others or oneself. The Schools standard of behavior apply not only to students, but also to all individuals involved in the publicly funded school system – parents or guardians, volunteers, teachers and other staff members – whether they are on school property, on school buses or at school-authorized events or activities.
Students are expected to utilize the following principles:
- conduct themselves in an appropriate manner when going to and from school, in classrooms, within school, on school grounds, during extended classroom activities, and on school buses;
• apply themselves in all curricular areas and to set high standards for personal achievement;
• attend school and classes on a regular basis and be punctual;
• dress in a manner which reflects purpose and propriety;
• be considerate of the thoughts, feelings and heritage of others;
• be free of illegal drugs/alcohol, possession, use or influence during any time they are under the jurisdiction of the school district;
Towards ensuring the above, we will create an environment which will encourage students to exercise self-discipline by:
• developing programs which promote appropriate behavior;
• using methods and procedures which enhance self-esteem and self-discipline;
• providing opportunities for students to practice cooperative classroom behavior;
• using procedures which model fairness, equity and respect;
- establishing a code of conduct consistent with Board policy.
*Students must follow the ‘School Wide Behavior Expectations’ that fit in with the above mentioned*
