  • The following policy was released for public consultation and feedback is welcome on the documents:

Policy 503 – Safe Schools (Bullying Prevention and Intervention, Progressive Discipline, Exclusion, Suspension and Expulsion)

This policy has been updated and divided into 4 procedures manuals that work together to administer the policy.  The division of procedures allows for greater understanding by students, parents, teachers, school administrators and community members of how schools will work towards building and sustaining a positive school climate, the expected behaviour of students, and the ways in which inappropriate behaviour of students will be addressed.

This policy is important to students, staff, school councils, parents and community members because everyone plays a role in maintaining the positive school environment needed for students to succeed.

School council chairpersons are encouraged to circulate this information and add this policy as a discussion item at an upcoming school council meeting, if possible.  The public is invited to review the documents and submit online feedback at www.ugdsb.ca/policy.  The deadline for public input is January 19, 2021 at 4 p.m. EST.  Persons without internet access may call 519-822-4420 (or toll-free 1-800-321-4025) ext. 723 to request a printed copy of the draft documents.
