What are the duties of a student?

Students are expected to contribute to their own learning success. A student's duty includes:

  • participate in learning opportunities
  • accept increasing responsibility for his or her learning
  • complete homework
  • attend school regularly and on-time
  • be part of a safe and positive learning environment
  • be responsible for his or her conduct at school and on the way to and from school
  • respect the rights of others
  • obey all school policies.

Students must attend school until they graduate from high school or until they are 18 years old. Children cannot be hired for work during school hours as they are expected to be in school.

New Brunswick District Education Councils (DEC)

are committed to guiding and moving forward the education of all students.
