4. Fighting or physical abuse.
5. Cheating.

CONSEQUENCES
1. First offence, the teacher talks to student – warning given, time out – behavior may be recorded.

2. If offence is repeated, the teacher has a student/teacher conference, behavior recorded by the teacher and privileges may be lost.

3. For repeated offence, behavior is recorded. The teacher arranges a student/teacher/parent conference. Administration is notified. Student is warned that the next step is in-school suspension or after school detention. Privileges will be lost.

4. For repeated offence, behavior is recorded. The teacher notifies the parent that the student has an in-school suspension (1/2 to one full day). Administration is notified and the Administrator talks to the student.

5. For repeated offence, the behavior is recorded and student is talked to by the Administration. A major in-school suspension or out-of-school suspension will be given by Administration. Counseling is encouraged. Parents notified/conference. Registered letter to parent and Superintendent.

6. After a period of two months, a recorded offence will be disregarded.

7. Students have a right to be in school, but it should also be considered a privilege. If students abuse the privilege, then the most logical consequence is to progressively lose the privilege.

8. Suspension only occurs after a student has chosen to misbehave!​
