Safe Schools

The Greater Essex Logo for Safe SchoolsCounty District School Board is committed to providing safe learning, teaching, and work environments for students, staff and community members. 
It is essential that all students have a safe, caring and accepting school environment in order to maximize their learning potential.  A positive school climate is needed to promote “responsibility, respect, civility and academic excellence” within the school.  These positive standards of behaviour apply not only to students, but also to all individuals involved in our school system – parents or guardians, volunteers, visitors, teachers and other staff members – whether they are on school or Board property, on school buses, at bus transfer points, or at school or Board-authorized events or activities. Adherence to these requirements and to those set out by the Education Act, Part XIII is expected of all members of the school community.
The Board supports these guiding principles through its Safe Schools policy, regulations, administrative procedures and related guidelines.   Please note these regulations, administrative procedures and guidelines are currently being updated and/or revised.  As they are completed, they will be posted.  For questions or concerns in the interim, please contact our Safe Schools Department at 519-255-3200 extension 10393.
