Canadian Bilingual School seeks to maintain and foster high standards of acceptable behaviour. The intent of our school procedures and policies is to ensure common decency and courtesy in order to protect the rights of all students to pursue an education free from disruption and interference of this process.
Emphasis is placed on the students’ individual responsibility for his/her own actions, and students are encouraged to make good choices based on self-respect and respect for others. The primary responsibility for student's behaviour rests with the individual student. It is important that students are in a safe, non-threatening school environment that is conducive to successful learning.
When a student has made a poor choice, our goal is to ensure that the student takes responsibility for changing his/her behaviour to that of an appropriate one. If the incident is of a serious nature, the classroom teacher and/or supervisor will need to fill out an Incident Report and submit it to the administration. Involvement of the administration may mean contact with the student's parents and will often result in a conference involving the student, his/her parents, teachers, and the administration. If the incident is founded, appropriate consequences will be determined by the principal or vice-principal.
Examples of Unacceptable Behavior:
Any action inside or outside the classroom which constitutes an infringement on another student’s right to learn in a safe environment, interferes with another student's education, or anyone’s well-being, will be considered a violation of school procedures and rules. The following list of unacceptable actions is provided as a guideline, but is not intended to be a complete list. It is the responsibility of each student to evaluate the appropriateness of, and to be accountable for, all of his/her actions.
