Code of Conduct

At GISS we are dedicated to the advancement of learning and social responsibility through Guided Individual Student Success.

 

The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to:

  • Promote conduct that supports a safe, orderly and healthy learning environment.

  • Establish expectations for conduct while engaged in school activities.

Acceptable student conduct involves:

  • Acting in a safe and respectful way towards self and others.

  • Demonstrating a commitment to and respect for learning and the learning environment.

  • Avoiding, and in no way condoning or promoting, discrimination on any basis for an individual or a group, including but not limited to, race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, physical or mental disability, gender, or sexual orientation.

 

Unacceptable Student Conduct:

  • Shows a lack of respect for self, others, the school and the learning environment.

  • Involves acts of discrimination, bullying, harassment and/or intimidation.

  • Involves illegal acts.​

Consequences for Unacceptable Student Conduct:
