Module 2, Part II: Roles and Responsibilities: Promoting Positive Student Behaviour: Catholic Teachers, Occasional Teachers, and Student Support Staff
This module is intended for catholic teachers, occasional teachers and student support staff. It focuses on their roles and responsibilities in preventing and addressing inappropriate student behaviour, such as bullying and cyber-bullying, and promoting positive student behaviours to support a safe, inclusive and accepting school environment. With the passing of The Accepting Schools Act (Bill 13) on June 15, 2012, amendments were made to the Education Act. The amendments strengthen the requirements for school boards to take preventative measures against bullying, the requirements related to suspensions and possible expulsion for inappropriate behaviour such as bullying, and the requirements to provide support for all students who have been involved.
