School Culture & Environment
We work with schools to ensure the attendance of students in accordance with
The Alberta School Act and our
Student Code of Conduct | Administrative Regulation 6005.
In consultation with the School Support Team, Attendance Services assists schools in the development and implementation of a Personalized Attendance Improvement Plan. This may involve interventions like community counselling, program modifications, or other interventions tailored to the student.
If the Personalized Attendance Improvement Plan fails to improve a student's attendance, a referral to the Attendance Board may be made. Attendance Services becomes actively involved in the possible modifications to the plan, which may include legal intervention.
Parents accompany students suspended from their community school for longer than five days (unless an independent student) and meet with school administration. A determination is then made to reinstate the student in the community school or expel according to Section 37 of the
Education Act – Chapter E-0.3 and
Administrative Regulation 6007 - Suspension and Expulsion.
Following the Board Delegate's decision, students must then be reinstated to the suspending school or directed to an appropriate available educational program. Various family and school actions result from the expulsion hearing to ensure success for the student.
