All AASB schools have mission statements that speak of high academic expectations and high expectations for character development and community building. We believe extra-curricular trips demand an increased layer of behavioral expectations and that the elements of risk are heightened for teachers, administrators, parents, students and for the school due to the elevated of risk inherent in taking numbers of students off campus.
Given the above, we believe a set of clear behavioral expectations and aligned consequences are necessary to help our schools support positive behavior and address infractions and violations consistently.
Level I Infractions (Major) include the following but are not limited to:
Use of drug/alcohol/tobacco/vaporiser
Physical & verbal abuse
Emotional abuse such as: hazing and bullying
Level II Infractions (Minor) include the following but are not limited to:
Violation of Curfew
Leaving any AASB venue without permission and/or proper supervision

A student may be sent home which will be at the parent's expense. (LI)
The student may be excluded from all future events for a period of one year from the date of the infraction, including the same tournament/event the following year. (LI)
The student may be excluded from next event in which they would be eligible to participate/represent their school. (LI)
The student may be declared ineligible for further participation in the event. This would include games, dances, and awards ceremonies. (LI/LII)
