​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 School Digital Citizenship Plan guides our work around the following areas:

  • The school community will be aware of our digital citizenship strategies and the rules and responsibilities that go with working with technology and online.
  • Students will comply with the Acceptable Use of Digital Devices Agreement.

  • Students will be supervised when using technology at all times.

2. Student Learning
