Code of Conduct

Island Discovery’s Code of Conduct has been established to maintain a safe, respectful and caring learning community.

Acceptable Behaviours

Helping make the learning centre a safe, caring place

Taking part willingly in our learning environment 

Showing compassion and integrity

Being encouraging and positive

Demonstrating respect for self and others and our learning environment

Letting adults know of incidents of harassment or intimidation

Being open to change

Unacceptable Conduct

Interfering with the learning of others

Use of violence or weapons

Hurting others physically or emotionally

Behaviour or communication that discriminates based on race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, age, physical or mental disability, sex, or sexual orientation (from the BC Human Rights Code)

Unacceptable behaviour will be managed with a restorative, rather than punitive manner and will take into account a student’s age, maturity, and special needs, if any.

Island Discovery’s code of conduct promotes the values expressed in the BC Human Rights Code respecting the rights of all individuals in accordance with the law – prohibiting discrimination based on race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, age, physical or mental disability, sex or sexual orientation – in respect of discriminatory publication and discrimination in accommodation, service, and facility in the school environment.
