Safe and Supportive Schools/Character Education/Equity Education
Every student has the right to learn in a safe and supportive environment. The York Region District School Board has a Safe Schools Policy and a defined procedure to implement the policy. Both the policy and procedure support the view that student discipline involves a continuum of support including prevention, intervention and appropriate consequences.  The YRDSB remains committed to the inclusion of anti-racist and equity education in its policies and programs.
In addition, Charles Howitt P.S. supports the development of character education in the York Region District School Board. The following is an overview of the school’s Character Education initiatives:
  • Morning Announcements
  • Photos on Bulletin Boards
  • Posters displayed
  • Monthly Assemblies
  • Involvement in the Terry Fox Run, Jump Rope for Heart
  • Supporting a foster child through World Vision
  • Various food drives, clothing donations and other charitable community activities
Character Education: We continue to focus on RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and RESULTS.  Our Code of Behavior is based on respect and responsibility.  We have monthly assemblies to celebrate student success academically, socially, athletically, artistically and otherwise.
