76. The governing board is responsible for approving the rules of conduct and the safety measures proposed by the principal.
In addition to the elements the Minister may prescribe by regulation, the rules of conduct must specify
(1) the attitudes and conduct that are required of students at all times;
(2) the behaviours and verbal or other exchanges that are prohibited at all times, including during school transportation, regardless of the means used, including social media; and
(3) the applicable disciplinary sanctions, according to the severity or repetitive nature of the prohibited act.
The rules of conduct and the safety measures must be presented to the students during a civics session held each year by the principal in collaboration with the school staff, and must be sent to the parents at the beginning of each school year.
