We view Digital Citizenship as a shared responsibility between students, their families, and the school.  We appreciate families taking the time to discuss this with their children and supporting the work of the school.  Please review this document, sign and return the final signature page in order for students to be able to:

  • Use the school’s computers and network
  • Use the CBE network
  • Use their personal device and connect to the CBE network with it

Students

Students are provided access to computers, other technology and the internet to assist them in their learning.  Students may bring their own digital devices to school and may use these devices in the classroom.

Students who bring their own devices to school will not have access to school servers or printers through the network.  As such they will need to utilize google drive to transfer files to the school network.  School classes may utilize software applications that the student does not have on their device.  No software will be provided to students.  

  • Access to technology is a privilege, not a right.  Use if respectfully and responsibly.
  • Never share your password with anyone except a parent or guardian
  • Use technology in a manner that protects your privacy, safety and freedom of thought.  Be responsible for protecting the rights of others as well
  • Use technology in a manner that protects your own health and wellness.

The following activities are prohibited and will be addressed on an individual basis as needed:

  • use of someone else’s CBE account
  • sharing of usernames and passwords for other people to use
  • sending, posting, displaying or using obscene language/messages or pictures or information about oneself or others
  • harassing, insulting or attacking another person or their reputation
  • viewing websites through a proxy server
  • plagiarism of online content
  • tampering with any computer accessories, hardware or software
  • use of technology or accessing sites not approved by staff
  • trespassing in other’s folders, work areas or files
  • using another student’s device without permission

The following sites are prohibited from use:

  • violent or lewd depictions of the human body
  • any adult content
  • violent acts
  • online gambling
  • social networking sites
  • websites that encourage the use of illicit or illegal substances
  • websites that advocate hatred or violence against an identifiable group
  • websites promoting criminal activity
  • non-educational games

Our expectation is that our students will become educated and responsible Digital Citizens.  If students breach any of the above, each situation will be dealt with on an individual basis and may result in:

  • restriction or loss of technology privileges
  • restriction of use, or confiscation of personal device
  • school based disciplinary consequences
  • police intervention and/or legal action

It is important that parents/guardians and students remember the following:

  • the school is not responsible for the loss, damage, or theft of student electronic devices
  • the school is not able to provide technical support for student devices
  • devices can only be utilized when students are under the direct supervision of a teacher in an approved area of the school
  • devices can only be utilized for educational purposes
  • misuse will be determined by the staff and administration

Supporting Student Safety and Learning

The use of technology, including student’s own personal devices, represents a significant opportunity for students to personalize their learning by choosing, along with the parents, effective strategies to meet their learning needs.  It is the student’s responsibility to use technology safely and appropriately.  To support student’s learning in this the school provides the following:

Adult supervision – Robert Warren staff monitor students’ use of technology as they do other student behaviour.  In addition to this the CBE is able to track all student activity in the internet and their use of school technologies.
Learning – teachers infuse learning outcomes related to digital citizenship in their classroom instruction.
Filtering – the CBE provides filtering to help prevent students from accessing inappropriate websites from the school network.

​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.​​​
