Examples of unacceptable behaviours include, but are not limited to: interference with the                Respect:           We respect and care for each other, our school, our community and our-

origin, religion, marital status, physical or mental disability, sex, or sexual orientation.              The matrix on the following page was created as part of the School Growth Plan.
Repetitive or severe unacceptable behaviour may result in increased severity of subse-

of the code of conduct. These parties may include: staff, parent(s) of student offender(s),
parent(s) of student victim(s), school district officials, police and/or other agencies, as
required by law and/or all parents.
