What can lead to a student being suspended?

Students involved in an incident contrary to the school board’s Code of Conduct can be suspended. The location of the incident can have occurred:

  • at school;
  • at a school-related activity; or
  • off school property and will have a negative impact on the school climate. For example, harming another student on the way home from school or harassing another student on a social networking website.
