Catholic Schools promote responsibility, respect, civility and academic excellence in a safe learning and teaching environment. A positive school climate exists when all members of the school community feel safe, comfortable and accepted. As a Catholic School Board we believe that this environment is achieved when conduct reflects Gospel values and the Board’s Mission Statement. In accordance with the Progressive Discipline and Safety in Schools Act, 2007, this pamphlet outlines the Board Code of Conduct Policy II-39 and the Administrative Procedure VI-44 which outlines Suspension and Expulsion Procedures (revised 2012).
GUIDING PRINCIPLES & PURPOSES of the CODE of CONDUCT It is the policy of the Halton Catholic District School Board to provide a safe working and learning environment for staff and pupils. The Progressive Discipline and Safety in Schools Policy and the Ontario Code of Conduct apply to pupils, teachers, staff members, parents or guardians, and volunteers, whether they are on school property, on school buses, at school-related events or activities, or in other circumstances that could have an impact on the school climate.
