School Policies > Consequences for Inappropriate Behaviour

Student Suspension

Results of Student Suspension

When a student is suspended by the school administration for whatever reason, that suspension carries with it other consequences.

For field trips, extra-curricular activities and the like, each individual teacher organizing or supervising the activity will have the right to decide whether or not to allow the previously-suspended student to participate. This possible loss of ability to participate will last for the semester in which the suspension occurred; if there is a second suspension, the possible loss of ability to participate will be for the whole year.


Plagiarism/Cheating is viewed as a major offence at Sanford Collegiate and will be treated as such. Consequences for plagiarizing/cheating will range from a mark of zero on a particular assignment to suspension. In every case, a record of the event will be kept for the duration of the student’s tenure at the school.

Use of Computers

Students are responsible for good behaviour on school computer networks just as they are in the classroom, library, or school grounds. The use of computer based technology is a privilege, not a right, and inappropriate use may result in the loss of that privilege. The school will deem what constitutes inappropriate use. All use of the Internet must be in support of educationally relevant activities.

Network storage areas provided for individual users are not private property. Network administrators will review student files and communications to maintain system integrity and ensure that students are using the system responsibly. Users should not expect that files stored on servers are always private. Access/use entails responsibility.

Appropriate Clothing

The school is a public facility, and as such, the rights of all must be taken into account. Therefore, students must consider others when deciding upon appropriate behaviour, language, and clothing. In terms of clothing, students must consider the comfort of other people, not just themselves. Students who do not dress appropriately for school will be spoken to, requested to change, and, if unwilling, sent home or removed from class. Appropriateness will be based on:

Compulsory Study Hall

Students who demonstrate an inability to properly utilize their spare time or an unwillingness to follow school rules in regards to behaviour during their unscheduled class time (spares) will be compelled to attend a compulsory study hall during their unscheduled class time.
