Greetings! The Canadian International Educational Organization has a no gift policy for teachers. This rule has been in place since 2009. We have this policy in order to create a fair environment for all our children. In the name of equity, we want to limit the pressure that is felt on students and teachers. Some students may feel insecure if they are not able to provide a gift, or, they may compare themselves to other students. Lastly, we do not want students or family members to assume there are educational benefits by providing gifts to their teachers.
Above all, we hope that our parents respect our professionalism and do not give any gifts during this holiday season to our CIS teachers.
Thank you for your support and cooperation!
