Code of Conduct
This Code of Conduct must be read and signed by all employees of the school, parents, and anyone who will have contact with students as part of a school program, activity, field trip, or other event. The person’s signature indicates understanding and agreement to the Code of Conduct.

Tirana International School Code of Conduct
Tirana International School is committed to the safety and protection of children. This Code of Conduct applies to all faculty, staff, employees, and volunteers. The public and private conduct of faculty, staff, employees, students, and volunteers acting on behalf of the school can inspire and motivate those with whom they interact, or can cause great harm if inappropriate. We must, at all times, be aware of the responsibilities that accompany our work. Additionally, members of the school community, including parents, must be aware of the parameters of the Code of Conduct and the expectation of adult behavior toward children within the school community.

  • We should be aware of our own and other persons’ vulnerability, especially when working alone with children and youth, and be particularly aware that we are responsible for maintaining physical, emotional, and sexual boundaries in such interactions. We must not engage in any covert sexual behaviors with those for whom we have responsibility. This includes seductive speech or gestures as well as physical contact that exploits, abuses, or harasses. We are to provide safe environments for children and youth at all school activities, both on and off campus. We ask families to provide safe environments for children at private events as well.
  • We must show prudent discretion before touching another person, especially children and youth, and be aware of how physical touch will be perceived or received, and whether it would be an appropriate expression of greeting, care, concern, or celebration. School personnel and volunteers are prohibited from physical discipline of a child.
  • Physical contact with children can be misconstrued both by the recipient and by those who observe it, and should occur only when completely nonsexual and otherwise appropriate, and never in private. One-on-one meetings with a child or young person are best held in public area; in a room where the interaction can be (or is being) observed; or in a room with the door left open, and another staff member or supervisor is notified about the meeting.
  • We must intervene when there is evidence of, or there is reasonable cause to suspect, that children are being abused in any way. Suspected abuse or neglect must be reported to the appropriate school and local authorities.
  • Faculty, staff, employees, and volunteers should refrain from the illegal possession and/or illegal use of drugs and/or alcohol, and from the use of tobacco products, alcohol and/or drugs when working with children. Adults should never buy alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, videos, or reading material that is inappropriate and give it to young people. Staff members and volunteers should not accept gifts from, or give gifts to, children without the knowledge of their parents or guardians.
  • Communication with children is governed by the key safety concept of transparency. The following steps will reduce the risk of private or otherwise inappropriate communication between parents, administration, teachers, personnel, volunteers, and minors:
  • Communication between school adults (including volunteers) and minors that is outside the role of the professional or volunteer relationship (teacher, coach, host, etc.) is prohibited.
  • Where possible, email exchanges between a minor and a person acting on behalf of the school are to be made using a school email address.
  • Faculty, staff, and volunteers who use any form of online communications including social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and text messaging to communicate with minors may only do so for activities involving school business.


  • Statement of Acknowledgement of Code of Conduct for Signature

    I promise to follow the rules and guidelines in this Code of Conduct as a condition of my providing services to the children and youth participating in Tirana International School programs. I will:
  • Treat everyone with respect, patience, integrity, courtesy, dignity, and consideration.
  • Never be alone with children and/or youth at school activities without another adult being notified.
  • Use positive reinforcement rather than criticism, competition, or comparison when working with children and/or youth.
  • Maintain appropriate physical boundaries at all times and touch children only in ways that are appropriate, public, and non-sexual.
  • Comply with the mandatory reporting regulations of the school by reporting any suspected child abuse or neglect to the Director or Counselor.
  • Cooperate fully in any investigation of abuse or neglect of children and/or youth.
  • Protect the child and the child’s family by maintaining confidentiality in the case of a report of misconduct, and refusing to share any details about the report with anyone outside of the school’s Child Protection Team and relevant authorities.

  • I will not:
  • Touch or speak to a child and/or youth in a sexual or other inappropriate manner.
  • Inflict any physical or emotional abuse such as striking, spanking, shaking, slapping, humiliating, ridiculing, threatening, or degrading children and/or youth.
  • Smoke or use tobacco products, or possess, or be under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs at any time while working with children and/or youth.
  • Give a child who is not my own a ride alone in a car, without explicit permission from the child’s parent/guardian.
  • Accepts gifts from or give gifts to children or youth without the knowledge of their parents or guardians.
  • Engage in private communications with children via text messaging, email, Facebook, Twitter or similar forms of electronic or social media except for activities strictly involving school business.
  • Discuss the details of any allegations with anyone outside of the Child Protection Team.


  • Staff, volunteers, and others who work with students:

    I understand that as a person working with and/or providing services to children and youth under the auspices of Tirana International School, I am subject to a criminal record background check. My signature confirms that I have read this Code of Conduct and that as a person working with children and youth, I agree to follow these standards. I understand that any action inconsistent with this Code of Conduct or failure to take action mandated by this Code of Conduct may result in disciplinary action up to and including removal from the school. If a report is made against me, and the allegations are confirmed, the school is bound to share the findings with anyone who inquires for a reference about me.

    Ky Kod Sjelljeje duhet te lexohet dhe firmoset nga cdo punonjes i shkolles, prind dhe cdokush qe do te kete kontakt me studentet si e nje programi shkollor, aktivitet, ekskurision ose event tjeter. Frima e dhene tregon mirekuptim dhe renie dakort me Kodin e Sjelljes.

    Kodi i Sjelljes i Tirana International School
    Tirana International School eshte e perkushtuar ndaj sigurise dhe mbrojtjes se femijeve. Ky Kod Sjelljeje do te aplikohet per te gjithe stafin fakultativ,stafin, punonjesit dhe vullnetaret.
    Drejtimi publik dhe privat i fakultetit, stafit, punonjësve, studentëve dhe vullnetarëve që veprojnë në emër të shkollës mund të frymëzojë dhe motivojë ata me të cilët ndërveprojnë ose mund të shkaktojnë dëm të madh nëse janë të papërshtatshëm. Në çdo kohë, ne duhet të jemi të vetëdijshëm për përgjegjësitë që shoqërojnë punën tonë. Përveç kësaj, anëtarët e komunitetit të shkollës, duke përfshirë edhe prindërit, duhet të jenë të vetëdijshëm për kerkesat e Kodit të Sjelljes dhe pritshmërinë e sjelljes së të rriturve ndaj fëmijëve brenda komunitetit të shkollës.
  • Ne duhet të jemi të vetëdijshëm për cenueshmërinë ndaj vetes dhe personave të tjerë, veçanërisht kur punojmë vetëm me fëmijët dhe të rinjtë dhe duhet të jemi të vetëdijshëm se ne jemi përgjegjës për mbajtjen e kufijve fizikë, emocionalë dhe seksualë në ndërveprime të tilla.
  • Ne nuk duhet të angazhohemi në asnjë sjellje të fshehtë seksuale me ata për të cilët kemi përgjegjësi. Kjo përfshin fjalë joshëse ose gjeste, si dhe kontakt fizik që shfrytëzon, abuzon ose ngacmon. Ne duhet të sigurojmë ambiente të sigurta për fëmijët dhe të rinjtë në të gjitha aktivitetet e shkollës, si në kampus dhe jashtë saj. Gjithashtu, ne u kërkojmë familjeve që të sigurojnë ambiente të sigurta për fëmijët edhe në evente private.
  • Duhet të tregojmë gjykimin e kujdesshëm para se të prekim një person tjetër, sidomos fëmijët dhe të rinjtë, dhe të jemi të vetëdijshëm se si prekja fizike do të perceptohet ose do të merret dhe nëse do të ishte një shprehje e përshtatshme për përshëndetje, kujdesjeje, shqetësim apo festim. Personeli i shkollës dhe vullnetarët janë të ndaluar të disiplinojnë fizikisht një fëmije.
  • Kontakti fizik me fëmijët mund të keqkuptohet nga marrësi dhe nga ata që e vëzhgojnë atë, dhe duhet të ndodhin vetëm në mënyrë jo seksuale dhe e përshtatshme, dhe kurrë në privatësi.
  • Takimet një-me-një me një fëmijë apo të riun mbahen më së miri në zonën publike; në një dhomë ku ndërveprimi mund të vërehet (ose po mbahet); ose në një dhomë me derën e hapur, dhe një anëtar tjetër i stafit ose mbikëqyrësi njoftohet për takimin.
  • Ne duhet të ndërhyjmë kur ka prova, ose ka arsye për të dyshuar, se fëmijët po abuzohen në ndonjë mënyrë. Abuzimi ose neglizhenca e dyshuar duhet të raportohet në shkollën e duhur dhe autoritetet lokale.
  • Fakulteti, stafi, punonjësit dhe vullnetarët duhet të përmbahen nga posedimi ilegal dhe / ose përdorimi ilegal i drogës dhe / ose alkoolit dhe nga përdorimi i produkteve të duhanit, alkoolit dhe / ose drogës kur punojnë me fëmijët. Të rriturit nuk duhet të blejnë kurrë alkool, droga, cigare, video ose materiale leximi që janë të papërshtatshme dhe t’ua japin të rinjve. Anëtarët e stafit dhe vullnetarët nuk duhet të pranojnë dhurata, ose të japin dhurata për fëmijët pa dijeninë e prindërve ose kujdestarëve të tyre.
  • Komunikimi me fëmijët udhëhiqet nga koncepti kryesor i sigurisë së transparencës.
  • Hapat e mëposhtëm do të zvogëlojnë rrezikun e komunikimit privat ose ndryshe të papërshtatshëm ndërmjet prindërve, administratës, mësuesve, personelit, vullnetarëve dhe të miturve:
  • Ndalohet komunikimi ndërmjet të rriturve (përfshirë vullnetarët) dhe të miturve që janë jashtë rolit të marrëdhënies profesionale ose vullnetare (mësues, trajner, mikpritës etj.).
  • Kur është e mundur, shkëmbimet e postës elektronike mes të miturit dhe një personi që vepron në emër të shkollës duhet të bëhen duke përdorur një adresë e-mail të shkollës.
  • Personeli, stafi dhe vullnetarët që përdorin çdo formë të komunikimit në internet, duke përfshirë mediat sociale (Facebook, Twitter, etj.) dhe mesazheve për të komunikuar me të mitur, mund ta bëjnë këtë vetëm për aktivitetet që përfshijnë shkollën.

    TIS Employee/Volunteer Acceptable Use Policy for Technology




    Introduction

    Tirana International School (TIS) provides TIS employees and TIS students (referred to collectively as “Users”) with access to technology. This technology (hereafter referred to as “the System”) includes but is not limited to computers, networks and storage devices, printers, scanners, mobile devices and other equipment, the Internet and other remote systems, software, email and other remote applications and future technology. TIS’s Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) governs use of the system by all TIS employees and students. The system also includes communication on personal devices between students and staff.

    Statement of Purpose

    The system has a limited educational purpose (hereafter referred to as “the Educational Purpose”). The Educational Purpose of the System as it relates to TIS students is to assist in preparing them for success in life and work in the 21st century. It provides many benefits, including access to a wide range of information and the ability to communicate with people throughout the world. Students’ use of the System is a privilege, not a right, as governed by the Student AUP set forth below.

    The Educational Purpose of the System as it relates to TIS employees is to assist them in professional learning and career development, planning and preparation, establishing a positive classroom environment, delivering effective instruction to students, and satisfying professional responsibilities. TIS employees’ use of the System is governed by the Employee AUP set forth below.

    Additionally, the System will be used to increase TIS and students’ intercommunication opportunities, enhance productivity, promote the exchange of information with peers, and assist employees in professional learning and career development. The System will also assist employees in sharing information with the local community, including parents, social service agencies, government agencies, and businesses.

    The AUP provides understandable guidelines and benchmarks to promote the safe, beneficial use of technology by TIS employees, students, and their families, that can be practically applied day to day, given that technology is inherently changing and unpredictable.

    Responsibilities

    The employee AUP is a legally binding agreement between TIS and the TIS employee. A signed AUP is a condition of employment and should be kept on file by the school director. A new signed AUP is required for each school year. Employees are expected to comply with the terms and conditions of the Employee AUP and are also expected to enforce the terms of the TIS Student AUP for those students under their supervision. Employees are expected to be exemplary and ethical users of technology, and bear a responsibility to promote to students, parents, and their peers the safe, positive uses of technology. Employees should use technology to enhance, but never to substitute for quality teacher-student contact. TIS supports these responsibilities in part through its Technology Essential Units on Digital Citizenship. Employees responsible for enforcing the terms of the student AUP should familiarize themselves with these units.

    This Employee AUP applies to all TIS students, employees and their designees (the Users). Any employee granting access to the System is responsible for informing the grantee of the terms of the AUP and is responsible for that person’s use of the system.

    Employees have a responsibility to use their good faith best efforts to make sure that students comply with the terms and conditions of the Student AUP.

    The Director will serve as the coordinator to oversee the System and will work with regional, state, or technology organizations as necessary. The Director will also serve as the building-level coordinator for the System, will approve building-level activities, ensure that all employees receive proper training in the use of the System and the requirements of this AUP, establish protocols to ensure adequate supervision of students using the System, maintain on file annually renewed AUP’s for both students and employees, and be responsible for interpreting and enforcing the AUP. It is the responsibility of the Director to inform supervising employees of any special concerns parents may have about their child’s use of the System.

    The System Administrator will establish and manage technical processes, including management of User System accounts, disk usage and other system quotas, backup and retention schedules, virus and safety systems. The System Administrator will coordinate with the Director on major decisions affecting budget and the normal conduct of daily operations.

    Unacceptable Uses of The System

    Commercial and Political Use

  • Users may not use the System for financial gain or commercial purposes, defined as offering or providing goods or services.
  • Unless done for educational purposes, Users may not use the System for political lobbying. Employees and students may use the system to communicate with their elected representatives and to express their opinion on political issues.
  • Illegal Activities
  • Users will not attempt to gain unauthorized access to the System or to any other computer system through the System, or go beyond their authorized access. This includes attempting to log in through another person’s account or accessing another person’s files. These actions are prohibited, even if only for the purposes of “browsing”.
  • Users will not make deliberate attempts to disrupt the System performance or destroy data by spreading computer viruses or by any other means.
  • Users will not use the System to engage in any other illegal act, such as arranging for a drug sale or the purchase of alcohol, engaging in criminal gang activity, threatening the safety of a person, gambling, etc.
  • Inappropriate Language
  • Users will not transmit through the System obscene, profane, lewd, vulgar, rude, inflammatory, threatening, or disrespectful language.
  • Restrictions against inappropriate language applies to all uses of the System, including public messages, private messages, and material posted on Web pages.
  • Users will not post information that, if acted upon, could cause distress, discomfort, physical damage, or a danger of disruption to others.
  • Users will not engage in personal attacks, including prejudicial or discriminatory attacks.
  • Users will not harass another person. Harassment is defined as persistently acting in a manner that distresses or annoys another person. If a user is told by a person to stop electronic contact, they must stop.
  • Users will not knowingly or recklessly post libelous, slanderous, false, or defamatory information about a person or organization.
  • Issues involving use of the System in a way that negatively affects other students or disrupts the school day may be dealt with by TIS, even if the System use was initiated off of school property and/or not during school hours.
  • Inappropriate Access to Material
  • Users will not use the System to access material that is profane or obscene (pornography), that advocates illegal acts, or that advocates violence or discrimination towards other people (hate literature). A special exception may be made for hate literature if the purpose of such access is to research or educate. Users may access the above material only in the context of legitimate research.
  • If a User inadvertently accesses such information, they should immediately disclose the inadvertent access in a manner specified by their school. This will protect the User from an allegation that they have intentionally violated the AUP.

  • Non-Educational Use of the System

    A limited quantity of personal System use is ordinary and healthy in the modern workplace, especially when employees are isolated by distance and time zone differences.

    Excessive personal use of the System is not allowed, and personal use should never compromise the educational objectives of the school or negatively impact TIS.

    Copyright & Plagiarism

    TIS policies on copyright, trademark, service mark, and related intellectual property right protections (Copyright) will govern the use of material accessed through the System. Employees will instruct students to respect Copyright and to request permission when appropriate. Users will themselves respect Copyright. If the User is unsure whether or not they can use a work, they should not use it without permission from the Copyright owner.

    TIS policies on plagiarism including the Essential Units on Digital Citizenship will govern the use of material accessed through the System. Employees will instruct students in appropriate research and citation practices. Users will not plagiarize works that they find on the Internet.

    Digital Publication

    TIS may provide technology that allows students, parents, and others to publish digital resources remotely via websites or other means, and for others to access these materials. Users are responsible for the content they post.

    Employees should be aware of issues that may arise due to this electronic publication of information. Employees must exercise vigilance as new material is posted, and also ensure that previously published data is updated or removed before potential problems arise.

    Personal Safety

    The safety of TIS students and employees must be the first priority of System Users. The AUP allows for limited publication of student and employee information, but the responsible employee must remain ever vigilant regarding unintended use of data in a manner that might imperil students or others.

    Users should never post personal contact information about students, parents, or others. Personal contact information includes home address, telephone, work address, and geospatial data.

    System Security

    Users are responsible for the use of their individual account(s) and should take all reasonable precautions to prevent others from accessing such account(s). A User should not disclose their passwords to another person.

    Users must immediately notify the System Administrator if they have identified a possible security problem. Users will not actively look for security problems, because this may be construed as a violation of the AUP.

    Users will avoid the inadvertent spread of computer viruses and other malicious applications by following best practices and relevant TIS security procedures for System use.

    Academic Freedom & Free Speech

    TIS policies on Academic Freedom and Free Speech will govern the use of the System.

    When using the System for class activities, Employees will select material that is both relevant and appropriate in light of student age and cultural sensitivities. Employees will preview the materials that they require or recommend to students to determine its relevance and propriety. Employees should provide guidelines to assist their students in channeling their research activities effectively and properly. Employees should assist their students in developing the skills to ascertain the truthfulness of information, distinguish fact from opinion, and engage in discussions about controversial issues while demonstrating tolerance and respect for those who hold divergent views.

    Communication

    TIS employees and volunteers will limit all communication between themselves and students to academic matters in email form, copying another adult in the process. Adults will not establish or maintain any form of chat in WhatsApp, Instagram, text messaging, Facebook, or any social media account with students. Communication with students is limited to email. The faculty handbook goes into depth on this issue as one of child protection.

    Limitation of Liability

    TIS makes no warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that the functions or the services provided by or through the System will be error-free or without defect. TIS will not be responsible for any damage Users may suffer, including but not limited to, loss of data or interruptions of service.

    TIS is not responsible for the accuracy or quality of the information obtained through or stored on the System. TIS will not be responsible for obligations arising through the unauthorized use of the System.

    Due Process

    TIS will cooperate fully with local, state, or federal officials in any investigation concerned with or relating to any illegal activities conducted through the System.

    Employee violations of the TIS AUP will be handled in accordance with governing laws.

    Search and Seizure

    System Users have a limited privacy expectation in the contents of their personal files stored on or accessed through the System.

    Routine maintenance and monitoring of the system may lead to discovery that the User has or is violating the AUP or governing law.

    An investigation will be conducted if there is reasonable suspicion that a User has violated the law or the AUP. The nature of the investigation will be reasonable and in the context of the nature of the alleged violation.
