The Standard of Behaviour is a teaching model rather than a mandate for behaviour. The emphasis is on teaching rather than telling, nurturing rather than sanctioning and including rather than excluding.
Developed by a broad cross-section of the community, the objective of our Standard of Behaviour is to ensure to the fullest extent possible, the provision of a “safe and caring community” for all involved with the Pembina Trails School Division.
Emotional, mental and physical safety are fundamental for the provision of safe, caring and inclusive school communities, and refer to a classroom or school environment in which students can experience a sense of value, belonging, acceptance, respect and dignity for diversity of all members of learning communities, including students and staff, along with their families.
We encourage families to review the Standard of Behaviour prior to the start of the school year and to review Policy JIC.
FRC Digital Citizenship Belief Statement
Just as we value behaviour that is respectful of self and the community as aspects of good citizenship, so too do we value these same qualities as attributes of good digital citizenship. We recognize that it is the responsibility of all members of our learning community to foster good citizenship. As teachers, we recognize our role in helping students discover appropriate use of technology in their lives in a variety of areas including:
· Relationships and Communication,
· Privacy and Security,
· Internet Safety,
· Etiquette and Cyberbullying,
· Digital Footprint and Reputation,
· Self-Imagine and identity,
· Information Literacy,
· Creative Credit and Copyright,
· Health and Wellness
Some of these teachings have direct connections to the courses we teach, while others impact our classroom expectations around the place and appropriate use of technology. Teachers will use their own professional judgment in deciding on the best ways to use technology to enhance student learning in their classrooms.
Our students will learn to use technology safely, ethically, mindfully, and responsibly as they become effective global citizens.
