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.
