Student Exclusions

Consultation On New Draft Policy P.144.SCO, Student Exclusions 

The OCDSB is seeking input from the public on the proposed new Policy P.144.SCO on Student Exclusions. 

What is a Student Exclusion? 

A student exclusion is a non-disciplinary tool used to mitigate risk to student safety in schools. If a student is causing or contributing to a safety risk for other students and disciplinary action is not appropriate, a student exclusion may be considered. The Education Act requires that all risks to student safety are mitigated.

The goal of a student exclusion is to quickly and consultatively determine how the situation at school can be made safer, so that all students can continue to learn at school. A re-entry plan for the affected student(s) is established collaboratively during, or as a result of, a case conference. Students are provided with any class work and support they may need while they are away from school. 

When is a Student Exclusion Necessary?

A student exclusion may be necessary in circumstances where student safety is at risk, but where disciplinary measures for a student are not appropriate upon assessment of mitigating and other factors.
