The Code of Conduct is intended to foster an environment of communication built on individual effort and mutual respect among students, teachers and administrators, with the common goals of achieving progress, development and success.
It is expected that all members of the King George community have the right, under the BC Human Rights Code, to an environment that is free of discrimination, harassment, bullying, cyberbullying, intimidation and violence, either physical or psychological. Racism will not be tolerated in our school.
In keeping with these guidelines it needs to be understood that as students become older, more mature and move through successive grades they are expected to develop increasing personal responsibility and self-discipline. There are increasing consequences for inappropriate behavior. When behaviours interfere with the learning of others, interfere with an orderly environment, or create unsafe conditions, there will be consequences. The severity and frequency of unacceptable conduct as well as the age, maturity and special needs (if any) of individual students are considered in determining disciplinary action. Disciplinary action, whenever possible, is restorative rather than merely punitive.
The principal or designate has a responsibility to inform other parties of serious breaches of the code of conduct. These parties may include: staff, parent(s) of student offender(s), parent(s) of student victim(s), school district officials, police and/or other agencies, as required by law and/or all parents. The school will ensure that reasonable steps are taken to prevent retaliation against a student who has made a complaint of a breach of the Code of Conduct.

3. Treat every person with respect and dignity
4. Respect community, school, and personal property
5. Act in a safe and courteous manner
6. Be supportive of and prepared for learning for all.
RACISM WILL NOT BE TOLERATED IN OUR SCHOOL.
