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.
1. Every person has the right to be treated with respect; therefore, every person has the responsibility to treat others with respect.
2. Students have the right to teachers who take responsibility to be prepared and engaged in their subjects. Likewise, students have the responsibility to be on time and prepared for classes, engaged in their schoolwork, and are expected to work to their potential in each class. This includes not using cell phones to text or make calls during class time unless there is an emergency.
3. We agree that our priority in the school is to achieve our educational goals. As such, students have the right to work uninterrupted and undisturbed by other students in the class. Students who continue to disrupt the class or who refuse to work may be asked to leave.
4. Students may use the school’s computers for school work. They may only store school-related work on the school’s server. Students are granted the privilege of using school computers for personal use (such as checking emails, etc at break times or lunch hour only. Any inappropriate use of the school’s computers could result in a loss of computer privileges. *Please refer to the WQSB Technology Policy for more information.
5. Students are expected to be in their assigned classes during class time – there is no wandering from class to class or sitting in the lounge or computer lab. Students who do not want to attend class will be asked to leave the premises.
6. Students who are absent from the centre without contacting us to justify their absences risk being removed from the list of active students and will have to meet with the administration to be reactivated in the centre. Students are asked to contact the centre if they are going to be absent (Absences are justified if you have a medical note, court appearance, bus cancellation or permission from the Centre Director)
7. Students who are in violation of the Drugs and Alcohol Policy of the Western Quebec School Board (see attached) risk being expelled from all programs. There is zero tolerance for consumption or possession of drugs or alcohol at school. Students suspected to be under the influence of either alcohol or drugs may be asked to leave by the administration. Lockers are for student use, but are the property of the Centre and thus may be searched at any time.
8. There is no smoking or vaping on school property. Students are asked to smoke off school property and to place their cigarettes in the appropriate receptacles, not on the ground.
I agree to the terms and conditions:
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.
