Student Code of Conduct
At CMJHS, we believe that all members of the school community contribute to a positive and dynamic learning environment. According to the School Act, students are expected to act in accordance with a code of conduct as developed at the school level.
Students, as a partner in education, have the responsibility to:
1.1 Attend school regularly and punctually
1.2 Be ready to learn, actively engage in and diligently pursue their education
1.3 Respect the rights of others in the school
1.4 Positively contribute to a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects diversity of all school and community members regardless of their race, religious beliefs, colour, gender, gender identity, gender expression, physical disability, mental disability, age, ancestry, place of origin, marital status, source of income, family status or sexual orientation
1.5 Refrain from, report and discourage bullying behaviour directed toward others in the school, whether or not it occurs within the school building, during the school day or by electronic means
1.6 Comply with the rules of the school and the policies of the Board
1.7 Co-operate and be accountable to the teachers, school staff and those authorized by the Board to provide education programs and other services in regards to conduct
In the interest of supporting a safe and caring learning community, schools will respond to behaviours that threaten or violate the physical and emotional safety of those in their care. Students are entitled to procedural fairness, due process, and respectful, dignified treatment. Improving student conduct relies on effective communication and cooperation between home and school. The school will respond with an intervention that is logical, restorative (where appropriate and possible) and take into account a student’s age, maturity and individual circumstances when determining responses. Support will be provided for students who are impacted by inappropriate behaviour as well as for students who engage in inappropriate behaviour. A risk/threat assessment may be undertaken to collect additional information to make decisions on the next steps. The following are examples of responses that may be considered in addressing inappropriate behaviour:
9.1 Discussion with those involved
9.2 Conference that may involve students, staff, parents and/or divisional personnel
9.3 A plan that may include counselling, mentoring, mediation, or outside agency involvement (Child and Family Services, Mental Health, RCMP, etc.)
9.4 Time out: a “cooling off” period
9.5 Student orientation
9.6 Withdrawal of privileges (school areas, transportation services, and/or school-related activities)
9.7 Development and implementation of a behavioural or performance contract
9.8 Suspension from class or from school (GHSD AP 351)
9.9 Expulsion: involvement of school administration, Superintendent and Board is required (GHSD AP 351)
