We believe that the best kind of discipline is self-discipline, one that comes from within rather than that which is imposed. We believe that discipline is best when it is preventative rather than punitive. In working with children, the staff will use those means that will promote and build good attitudes and respect for others.
Types of Consequences
Whenever a student violates school rules and shows disregard for their importance, college personnel will institute the consequences or disciplinary actions. The following will be considered:
- Students will be counselled in addition to any consequence.
- The severity of the infraction will be taken into consideration in determining the specific consequence. For example, a mild infraction may be handled with a reprimand and warning, while other infractions may warrant notification to the parents.
- The number of times the offense has been repeated will be taken into account in determining the specific consequence. Progressive discipline will be used for repeat offenders.
- Whenever possible, behaviour improvement plans will include natural or logical consequences of behaviour, e.g. loss of "free-time" privileges, cleaning up of graffiti.
- The classroom teacher will refer a student to the administration when efforts to help the student have not altered the offending behaviour or when the severity of the offense requires disciplinary measures beyond the classroom.
