Code of Conduct

At René Deleurme Centre, we believe in helping students become responsible citizens who contribute positively to our society. This means we focus on all aspects of student development, including academic, cognitive, linguistic, and social and emotional growth. Each of these aspects reflects a developmental process and requires us to work with individual learners to implement an appropriate plan. This is a shared responsibility among the student, his or her family, the school and the community. Ongoing communication and cooperation among families, students and the school is important in helping students to be successful.

The staff, students and families of René Deleurme Centre believe that:

  • We take responsibility to learn and make good decisions, and adhere to divisional and provincial policies.
  • We work and play safely at all times.
  • We dress in a way that shows dignity and respect for ourselves and others.
  • We respect all school and personal property.
  • We treat all members of the school community with acceptance and respect.

In addition to the aforementioned beliefs, the following must be noted as stipulations that will result in immediate referral to the administration, as outlined in the Public Schools Act. The following behaviours are unacceptable:

  • bullying, or physical, sexual or psychological abuse (orally, in writing or otherwise)
  • discrimination on the basis of any characteristics set out in subsection 9(2) of the Human Rights Code
  • using, possessing or being under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs at school
  • involvement in gang activity on school sites
  • possessing a weapon, as “weapon” is defined in section 2 of the Criminal Code (Canada), in or on school sites
  • disrespecting the appropriate use of electronic mail and the Internet, including the prohibition of material that the school has determined to be objectionable

At René Deleurme Centre we strongly believe in the development of social contracts which contribute to creating a community of mutual understandings. The following interventions are intended to protect the rights of all students and staff to learn in a safe, caring and orderly environment, while at the same time seeking to preserve the dignity and self-worth of individuals. Depending on the nature and severity of behaviour the following actions may be taken:



Formal Conference 


Temporary Withdrawal from Classroom  

Informal Interview


Removal of Privileges 


Restitution and Restorative Justice 

Parent Contact 


In-School Suspension 


Behaviour/Performance Contract

We refer families to the following Divisional Policies that support this school Code of Conduct:

Policy ADD - Safe Schools/Code of Conduct

Policy JICH - Student Use of Alcohol and Other Drugs

Policy JICI-JICK - Responses to Use of Weapons & Violent Behaviour in the Learning Environment

Policy JK - Student Discipline

Policy JKD-JKE - Student Suspension/Student Expulsion



Personal non school-related items (MP3 players, cell phones, cameras and video devices)

Students are discouraged from bringing these items to school. Student use of personal cell phones, cameras and video recording devices of any sort is not permitted in the school. Furthermore, theft of valuable devices and personal property can become a problem. If these items are brought to the school, they must be turned off and locked in the student's locker. Non-compliance will lead to the item being confiscated by school staff.
