Sutherland Secondary
North Vancouver School District
Student Code of Conduct

The Sutherland Code of Conduct is a product of collaboration between staff, students and the Parent Advisory Council of the school.  It reflects the school’s intention to preserve for all students and staff a safe and caring environment for purposeful learning and social interaction.  Expectations for student behaviour and participation in active learning are based on requirements and expectations of the School Act of British Columbia (Sections 6, 10, 85, 91), the prohibitive grounds of discrimination set out in the BC Human Rights Code, the Board of School Trustees of North Vancouver School District (Policy 302), and of Sutherland School staff and administration.  This Code of Conduct applies at school and school sponsored-events or in other circumstances where engaging in the activity will have an impact on the school environment, including but not limited to aggressive behaviours such as bullying, “cyber” hate messaging and websites created outside of school.  Prohibited grounds of discrimination set out in Sections 7 and 8 of the Human Rights Code include race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, and age.

The full Sutherland Code of Conduct is printed in the student Agenda Book.
