School Handbook Excerpts

Student Code of Conduct and Progressive Discipline Procedure

Calgary Academy strives to ensure a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment for all Students, Employees and Representatives. This includes establishing and maintaining an appropriate balance between individual and collective rights, freedoms and responsibilities in the School community.

Positive Behaviour Intervention System

A key aspect of the Positive Behaviour Intervention and Supports (PBIS) system is that students receive support and intervention according to their needs, when they need it. Student supports and interventions can be universal, targeted, or intensive. Universal supports and interventions are accessible primarily in the classroom through the expertise of our teachers. Targeted and intensive supports and interventions are accessible mainly through administrative and specialized services. All responsive measures are designed to help students address disputes and conflicts, develop empathy, and prosper as citizens within and outside of the school community. When students respond well to higher levels supports and interventions, eventually they can be served once again by universal supports.

Detailed information on the various levels of interventions will be added here prior to the start of the school year.
