Safe Schools

The Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board is committed to the development of the whole person and to providing a total education—spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional and social—in which the true worth of each person is recognized and promoted.

The Board is committed to maintaining safe, inclusive and accepting schools and workplaces, free from violence, harm and disruption. Building a positive and inclusive school climate requires a commitment to developing healthy and respectful relationships throughout the whole school and community, among and between students and adults.

Code of Conduct

A code of conduct promotes responsibility, respect, civility, and academic excellence in a safe, inclusive and accepting learning and teaching environment.

These standards of behaviour apply to students whether they are on school property, on school buses, at school related events or activities or in other circumstances that can have an impact on the school climate. They also apply to all individuals involved in our Catholic schools: principals, teachers, other school staff, parents, volunteers and community groups.
