CONSEQUENCES AND DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES
The expectations outlined in the Code of Conduct apply to behaviour at school, during school-organized or sponsored activities, and behaviour beyond these times including on-line behaviour that negatively impacts the safe, caring or orderly environment of the school, and/or student learning.
Special considerations may apply to students with special needs if they are unable to comply with the Code of Conduct due to having a disability of an intellectual, physical, sensory, emotional, or behavioural nature.
The school will treat seriously behaviour or communication that discriminates based on race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex or sexual orientation. These prohibited grounds are set out in the BC Human Rights Code.
Wherever possible, we focus on consequences that are restorative rather than punitive and are appropriate to the age and maturity of the student. Any student who violates School Board or school policies will be subject to disciplinary action which may include:
· an interview with a vice principal or the principal
· notification of parents/guardians
· in-school suspension
· community service
· referral to counselling or a treatment program
· suspension from school
· transfer to another school
· expulsion from the school district
· police involvement and possible criminal charges
In some cases, violation of school or district policies may also be a violation of the criminal code and may result in a police investigation and possible charges.
