New: Threat/Risk Assessment Notification

 Permanent link

The Upper Grand District School Board is committed to providing safe learning environments for all students, staff, school visitors and community members. When a student behaves inappropriately, principals use progressive discipline to help a student take responsibility for their actions, change their behaviour, and learn from their mistakes.

When students' behaviour pose a potential threat to safety or serious harm, the Community Violence Threat Risk Assessment Protocol (VTRA) helps principals take further steps to protect students' well-being.
