The purpose of the IEP is to help a student who, because of a handicap or difficulties, needs adapted interventions in order to progress optimally in developing the competencies required for success. This is a voluntary disclosure
The signature of the student (and parent/guardian in the case of a minor) is mandatory before students will be allowed access to any WQSB computer or technology- based resources. The form is required to be signed prior to the student starting at the Centre. A user agreement document will be provided upon your first day at your centre, which will need to be signed. If you are under 18 year of age, a parent or guardian will also be required to sign the technology user agreement form before you begin.
As a user of the Western Quebec School Board’s technology hardware, software, networks and internet access service, I hereby agree to comply with the WQSB Appropriate Use of Information and Communication Technology Resources Policy.
The Western Quebec School Board, Adult Education and Vocational Training is proud to publicize the accomplishments of our students and staff in newsletters, on the walls of our institutions, in our publicity, in regional papers, on our web site or our Facebook page.
The diffusion of names, student work, photos and videos cannot be done without your authorization in respect of the access of information law for Public Organization and the protection of personal information under the Quebec Civil Code. We would therefore ask that you fill in the form below.
Should you not agree, your rights will be respected.
At HAEC, our guiding principles lead to healthy relationships, respectful behaviour, and the creation of a positive learning environment.
1. Respect of oneself, others, and the physical space we share
(respect yourself, courteous and polite toward others, promoting cleanliness, practicing good hygiene, respecting the classroom/centre environment etc.)
2. Respect of oneself, others, and the digital space we share
(adhering to the technology user agreement, cyber bullying, posting on social media, referencing others)
3. Share your successes to support others
(share our achievements to promote achievement in others)
4. Embrace your mistakes and learn from them
(seeing our mistakes as learning moments and a valuable necessary part of learning)
5. Accepting there are necessary rules to follow
(drug and alcohol policy, smoking policy, attendance policy-reporting absences, Safe Schools Policy*)
6. Empowered to use your voice toward positive changes in the Adult Education community
(student council, share ideas, see something say something, student rights)
7. Aspire to a professional behaviour
(on time at start time until break time then return time for class time as per class scheduled time; wear clothes that follow guiding principle 1, 8)
8. Accept diversity, differences, and inclusivity
(safe spaces for all members of the Adult Education community)
The Hull Adult Education Centre believes that every member of its community has the right to learn and work in a safe physical and cyber environment. The Centre follows the Quebec Education Program guidelines that promote safe learning environments for students.
HAEC does not tolerate any behaviour that jeopardizes the psychological, social, or physical well-being of members of its community.
Inappropriate behaviour, including online, is defined as any repeated direct or indirect behaviour, comment, act, or gesture, whether deliberate or not. This occurs when there is a power imbalance between people which causes distress and injures, hurts, oppresses, intimidates, or ostracizes another.
Violations of the Safe School Policy will be addressed as outlined in the “Complaint Procedure Policy.” Any member of our community who feels their safe space has been violated has a right to and is encouraged to report the incident as outlined in the policy.
As a HAEC Student, I have Rights as well as Responsibilities
HAEC is a learning community committed to providing a safe and civil environment which is respectful of the rights, responsibilities, well-being and dignity of all its members. As a member of this community students can expect to be a part of a respectful, engaging, collaborative, creative and innovative environment
HAEC has established policies and procedures to ensure that all members of the centre community may benefit from the promotion of its core values. The centre upholds and will take reasonable steps to ensure that students, as members of our community, are aware of their rights and responsibilities, as follows:
HAEC Student Rights
HAEC Student Responsibilities
High standards of professionalism are expected from all students and staff at Western Quebec Adult and Vocational Education Centres. Everyone should arrive at the Centre fully prepared, and in the right frame of mind to learn and facilitate learning.
A student may be suspended for up to 3 months for a first offence of the following:
1. In possession of drugs or alcohol
2. Promoting the use of, or trafficking drugs or alcohol
3. Observed or reported to be using drugs or alcohol on school property
If a student wishes to return to the Centre after a suspension for the above offences, they will be required to submit a written request for a meeting with the Centre Director. The student will also be required to meet with our Drug and Alcohol Counsellor after their return.
A student may also be asked by the Centre Director (or designate) to leave school for a period of time should they be suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. All efforts will be taken by staff and administration to confidentially assist students with dependence issues who request support.
The following is an excerpt from the Western Quebec School Board Drug and Alcohol Policy:
1. Any students registered in Adult Education found trafficking, under the influence of, or in possession of alcohol and/or illegal drugs will be immediately expelled from school.
2. The school administration will confiscate alcohol/or illegal drugs.
3. Where appropriate, the police will be notified, the student will be identified to them and the police will be given the confiscated goods.
Notwithstanding the above, this Board makes every effort to cooperate with and enlist the support of the Health & Social Services rehabilitation programs and other related community-based organizations designed specifically to address the needs of students who have a recognized drug and alcohol problem and through curriculum-based projects educates its students on the responsibility to self and society.
Furthermore, the Principals of the schools shall continue to take whatever measures they deem appropriate to keep our school alcohol and drug-free, and they shall publicize this statement of the Board’s intentions.
