Policy 19 - Welcoming, Caring, Respectful, Safe and Inclusive Learning and Working Environments

June 28

On April 1, 2018, amendments to Section 45.1 of the School Act came into force, requiring all publicly funded school authorities to establish a welcoming, caring and respectful policy. School authorities have until June 30, 2018 to make their compliant policies available in a prominent location on a publicly accessible website maintained by or on behalf of the school authority. This requirement applies to all public, separate, Francophone, charter and accredited private school operators.

In compliance with the amendments to Section 45.1 of the School Act FFCA's Policy 19 has been amended to meet the requirements set forth in these amendments. Policy 19 can be accessed using this link - Policy 19 - Welcoming, Caring, Respectful, Safe and Inclusive Learning and Working Environments.
