Interventions and Consequences
All students are expected to assume responsibility for their behaviour. When students fail to honour the code of behaviour, they may expect one or more of the following interventions:
- Discussion with the teacher or supervisor
- An intervention program with the Special Ed. Techs
- The loss of certain privileges
- A written assignment
- Community work in school
- Detention at recess or lunch
- Communication with a parents/guardians regarding the problem
- Meeting with parent/guardian and child
- In-school suspension (a day’s work in isolation from the class)
- Suspension at home for a period of 1-5 days. A parent/guardian must then accompany the child back to school and meet with the Principal or appropriate staff before the child may return to class.
Communication is a phone call and/or a Blue Sheet. Blue Sheets come in two different forms:
- Communication to parents/guardians of a serious offense (fighting, severe or repeated inappropriate behaviour )
- Notice of suspension
Attending school is both a right and a privilege for all children. Rules and regulations are present for the safety and well-being of our students. Any student who is physically, emotionally, or verbally abusive with another child or staff member may be suspended from school while interventions are put in place to change the behaviour. Parents will be informed if such a consequence is necessary. Parents/Guardians are requested to support and work with the school to ensure that aggressive behaviour does not re-occur. Suspension is not a holiday for the child. Please ensure that the student realizes the seriousness of the suspension.
