Fair Notice

 

The Chilliwack School District and community partners are committed to making our schools safe for students and staff. As a result, schools will respond to all student behaviours that pose a potential risk to themselves, other students, staff, and members of the community.

 

Student Threat Assessment Protocol:  FAIR NOTICE

What behaviours initiate a student threat assessment?

A student threat assessment will be initiated when behaviours include, but are not limited to, serious violence or violence with intent to harm, or kill, verbal/written threats to harm/kill others, Internet website/MSN threats to harm/kill others, possession of weapons (including replicas), bomb threats and fire setting.

 

Duty to report

To keep school communities safe and caring, staff, parents, students and community members must report all threat-related behaviours.

 

What is a threat?

A threat is an expression of intent to do harm or act out violently against someone or something. Threats may be verbal, written, drawn, posted on the Internet or made by gesture. Threats must be taken seriously, investigated and responded to.

 

What is a Threat Assessment Team?

Each school has a Threat Assessment Team which is multi-disciplinary. The team may include Principal, Vice-Principal, District Resource Reacher, School Counsellor and Police.

 

What is the purpose of a student threat assessment?

  • The purposes of a student threat assessment are:
  • To ensure the safety of students, staff, parents and others.
  • To ensure a full understanding of the context of the threat.
  • To understand factors contributing to the threat makers’ behavior.
  • To be proactive in developing an intervention plan that addresses the emotional and
  • physical safety of the threat maker.
  • To promote the emotional and physical safety of all.

 What happens in a student threat assessment?

All threat making behavior by a student shall be reported to the Principal who will activate the protocol for the initial response. Once the team has been activated, interviews may be held with the student(s), the threat maker, parents and staff to determine the level of risk and develop and appropriate response to the incident. Intervention plans will be developed and shared with parents, staff and students as required.

 

Can I refuse to participate in a threat assessment process?

It is important for all parties to engage in the process. However, if for some reason there is a reluctance to participate in the process by the threat maker or parent/guardian, the threat assessment process will continue in order to promote a safe and caring learning environment.

Information & Announcements

Introducing The A.D. Rundle Integrated Arts & Tech Cohort September 2020

Registration for The A.D. Rundle Integrated Arts and Technology was between Monday January 20, and March 31, 2020. Applications after March 31 can still be made online; and applicants will be added to the existing waitlist. Please visit https://sd33.bc.ca/integrated-arts-and-technology-k-12-program to register and for further information.

This is an AMAZING opportunity for our school. There is already a buzz from our current staff because this form of learning is best practice.  Students will still learn all required curriculum.  Teachers will use an arts based lens to integrate all subjects.  Many of our staff are already using this style of teaching because it makes learning relevant to the student.

Please note: School organization for the 2019-20 school year will remain status quo.  If you would like any more information on this initiative please do not hesitate to email me at, scott_wallace@sd33.bc.ca 

Please submit your child's immunization record to Public Health

As you may be aware, starting July 1, 2019, parents and guardians have been requested to report the vaccination status of their school-age children. All B.C. students are required to have their complete immunization records in the Provincial Immunization Registry. This applies to children from kindergarten to grade 12, in public and independent schools and those who are home-schooled. As a result of this change in protocols, Public Health staff will be checking the immunization records for kindergarten-age children before they enter the school system and are requesting that parents or guardians of children in other grades to check their child’s online immunization records and update them accordingly.  Please click the link below for more Information on how this is to be accomplished.

 

Please Note: The school does not keep a record of your child's immunizations
