Chai School Contract
Chai School is firmly committed to providing and promoting a Jewish educational atmosphere where all students are able to thrive in their Jewish learning. The conduct which we promote is based upon mutual respect and a sense of personal well-being, where each person treats others with Kavod (honor and respect). This implies that:
Each person will arrive prepared to participate and learn. Each person will respect their peers and educators and recognize educators as authority figures. Each person is responsible for their own behavior and will strive to make decisions that respect the rights and property of others. Each person recognizes the sanctity of the temple and will behave appropriately and respectfully throughout the building. Each person recognizes that everyone has the right to:
o Feel safe
o Be respected
o Be able to learn to the best of his/her ability
o Be treated fairly irrespective of race, gender, physical characteristics, sexual orientation, or any other factors.
I recognize that if I fail to comply with the following rules that I will be asked to leave Chai School and/or further punishment will be the responsibility of the Educator and Rabbi.
I recognize that actions that will not be tolerated include:
The possession or use of weapons or anything that may be construed as a weapon into the building or any program. The possession, distribution, or use of any illegal drug or drug paraphernalia. The possession, distribution, or use of any alcoholic beverages other than those served by an educator for Jewish sacramental purposes. Any dress that is not appropriate (i.e. not respectful or modest) for our Temple. The participation in any activity that is deemed as sexual or sexual harassment. The participation in any activity that is seen as demeaning or hurtful towards others. The participation in any activity that is seen as threatening towards others or makes others uncomfortable or upset
I understand that this code of conduct is compliant at all times during the course of Chai School and if I fail to comply with the above terms there will be appropriate consequences.
If a student violates the brit limmud in such a manner that the student is dangerous to himself/herself, others, or destroying property, the student's actions will be immediately reviewed with the parents. The Educator and Rabbi will determine, with the parents, under what conditions, if any, the child can continue participation in the school.
