Personal Electronic Device (PED) Policy

Technology in the classroom is used to support learning. Grade 4-6 students bringing their own devices need to use them in a responsible and respectful way in accordance with CBE policy and the Privacy Laws of Alberta.

Responsible use of any device will be at the teacher’s discretion during classes, that is, teachers need to give students permission to use the devices within the classroom environment.

PED is the responsibility of the student who owns it. It is expected that a student’s personal device is used only by that student and not shared with others. It is the responsibility of the student/parent if a device is lost, stolen or damaged.

Parents, please do not call or text your child directly during class time. It is imperative that communications during the school day goes through the office in order that students can access support.

Here are a few examples of what is allowed and what is not:

Allowed with Teacher's PermissionNot Allowed at Anytime

 Taking pictures and videos
Google Apps for school workAny use of the device outside of the classroom

​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.​​​

Our "classrooms" look different, but we continue to support student learning. Check out this video for more info. #wearecbe https://t.co/z6XBq4mA3Q
