Welcoming, Caring, Respectful & Safe Schools Policy

Foothills Academy, like any other school, is trusted to ensure the safety, health and personal well-being of each and every student. Alberta’s Ministry of Education passed Bill 24, which is an Act to support Gay-Straight Alliances and is a move to support many students who feel vulnerable or lost at school and in society. It is imperative that we make sure all students feel welcome, cared for, respected and safe in their learning environments at school, and Bill 24 is an important piece of this.

As per the legislated requirements under the School Act, Section 45.1 (including Section 16.1), Foothills Academy’s Policy providing students and staff with a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment, including the student code of conduct, is linked below.
