Student Code of Conduct

KELLY ROAD SECONDARY SCHOOL CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT

The staff, parents and students at KRSS believe that school and school-related activities must be held in a safe and secure learning and working environment.  The KRSS Student Code of Conduct formalizes the expectation for student behaviour that provides the opportunity to maximize effectiveness of the learning environment.  Along with the handbook, this Code of Conduct will be communicated to students through a variety of means, including: in-class discussions, class visitations, assemblies, newsletters and from their peers (LINK Leaders).  It is included in the Staff Handbook and in the information provided to casual staff.  A copy of the District Code of Conduct is also available upon request.  While the following list is not exhaustive, when in school, on school property, during a school-sponsored activity, while under the school’s jurisdiction, students are expected to:

1. Accept responsibility for their conduct;

2. Behave with due respect toward their fellow students, staff, school district personnel and other adults; (“Treat others the way you want to be treated”)

3. Respect the property of their fellow students, staff and the community; (“don’t mess with what ever isn’t yours”)

4. Never engage in an inappropriate activity, which may, in any way, lead to either physical or mental injury, or cause financial loss to anyone; (“don’t fight, don’t steal, don’t bully, don’t start rumours or call people names”)

5. Attend school regularly and be punctual for all classes; (Don’t skip or be late”).

6. Dress appropriately for school: it is a place of business (“always follow the four Bs, no showing bellies, backs, breasts, buttocks)

7. Participate, to the best of their ability, in school academic activities and should, to the best of their ability, participate in other school and community activities (“doing well at school and in the community will help you do well in life”)

8. Demonstrate honesty in their academic work; (“don’t lie, cheat or copy”)

9. Refrain from the use of inappropriate language; (“don’t swear”)

10. Refrain from use of alcohol, tobacco products and drugs; (“don’t drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, smoke pot or do other drugs”)
