Digital citizenship is having the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to demonstrate responsible and respectful behavior when using technology or participating in digital environments. This goes beyond email etiquette and avoiding plagiarism to encompass all elements of digital engagement, in particular, protecting private information, staying safe online, and knowing how to deal with bullying in the digital world, whether you’re a target or a bystander.  

Technology is na important part of our world and our learning. It is important that we, children and adults alike, use technology appropriately. 

The three themes of Digital Citizenship that we will be focusing on this year at Chief Justice Milvain School are:

  • Digital self: respectfully and responsibly create and manage a positive personal digital presence. 
  • Digital Safety & Security: responsibly manage and protect digital identity and online presence

Please review page 13 in your child’s student agenda and ensure that you have signed the Acceptable Use Policy student and parent acknowledgement. 

We encourage all parents/guardians to inform themselves of system policies and procedures around digital citizenship.  These include:

Violation of the CJM Acceptable Use Policy: It is expected that  the Policy is followed. If there is a violation of the Policy, each situation is dealt with in consideration of individual and mitigating factors. The following are possible consequences:

  • Conference with student about the issue 
  • Inform parents 
  • A restriction or loss of computer privileges 
  • Restorative projects 
  • School based disciplinary consequences, which may involve school administration 
  • Paying for any damaged resulting from intentional misuse 
  • Police intervention and/or legal action

​Digital Citizenship at the CBE

Digital citizenship is about using technology and participating in digital environments. It is key to helping our students learn to use available technology responsibly in the classroom and beyond. Our school has a Digital Citizenship Plan that is updated annually, addressing how we work to build a community where we live and work together as digital citizens.

Visit the CBE website to learn more on how we support students develop online safety skills and learn to be good digital citizens.​​​

We are seeking input from our families, students and staff about what we should consider in our planning for school re-entry for the 2020-2021 school year. We will be collecting feedback until June 11 https://t.co/X3YzfNH5ZK #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/xpHFZLEc3H

CBE playgrounds remain closed. We will begin re-opening on Monday, June 1. Openings will continue throughout next week. Once the yellow tape has been removed and signs say the playground is open, the equipment can be used according to health guidelines. #yycbe #WeAreCBE #yyc https://t.co/zBid3GNq26
