The Board of Trustees believes that respectful and responsible behaviour by all students is essential to positive learning environments.  The board recognizes that when a student refuses to behave appropriately, and after reasonable effort has been made by the teacher and administrators, which may include restorative practice, to help the student behave, or where the student’s behaviour is so severe that lesser corrective action would be insufficient, then a suspension and/or disciplinary hearing and ultimately, expulsion may become necessary.
