Safe Schools

April 26, 2021

A variety of programs are offered to ensure that our schools are safe and caring communities. A team of administrators, co-ordinators, advisors and consultants provides direction support to administrators, staff, parents, students and community.

The focus of these programs strengthens our schools in the following areas:

  • Building safe and caring school communities
  • Understanding violence and violence prevention
  • Ensuring compliance with the Winnipeg School Division Code of Conduct and Safe Schools Act
