Code of Conduct

 

“We care about ourselves, each other and this place.”

Our Code of Conduct is designed to help create a climate of cooperation, learning success, respect and safety.

Students at Rogers are guided by the belief that “We care about ourselves, each other and this place” while going to and from school, at school and while attending any school function.

We consider individual personalities and increasing expectation of responsibility based on age, special needs and goals, when dealing with student conduct.  Appropriate discipline is positive in nature and involves the active participation of the students.  Parents and school staff wish Rogers to be a safe, caring and enjoyable learning place for all. The school will take all reasonable steps to prevent retaliation against a student who has made a complaint to their Teacher or Principal regarding our Code of Conduct.

In line with the BC Human Rights Code, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of an individual’s race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, and age, Rogers Code of conduct promotes a climate of understanding and mutual respect where all are equal in dignity and rights.

Our Code of Conduct recognizes that all Rogers citizens have rights and that these rights come with responsibilities:

I have the RIGHT to be safe.  Therefore, I have the RESPONSIBILITY to solve problems and conflicts peacefully, play safely, and to avoid threatening, teasing or hurting others.

I have the RIGHT to be respected.  Therefore, I have the RESPONSIBILITY to be courteous, to be considerate of other people: to consider their rights, feelings and well-being.

I have the RIGHT to learn.  Therefore, I have the RESPONSIBILITY to be on time for class, listen attentively, cooperate with others, and to work and move about the school without disturbing others.

I have the RIGHT to privacy and my own personal space.  Therefore, I have the RESPONSIBILITY to respect the property of others and to accept their right to privacy.
