Digital Citizenship at Valley Creek School
A wireless network for internet access using student owned personal electronic devices is provided at Valley Creek School. At our school, we have CBE owned devices (laptops, desktops, etc.) that access our CBE network (both fixed and Wi-Fi).
Students have access to a variety of media tests and technology tools throughout their classrooms in the school. It is expected that all students adhere to expectations for responsible and ethical use of technology and the Internet while in our school. Misuse of digital tools, including computers, the network, digital cameras and cell phones, will result in loss of privileges for a period of time.
Students also have the opportunity to access the LAWN (Learner Accessible Wireless Network) using their own digital devices in the school. Students and their parents/guardians are required to read and sign the Network User Agreement before accessing this service in the school. Students may use their own devices at their teacher’s discretion to personalize their learning in the classroom. Privileges to use cell phones and other digital devices during the health and lunch hour are also at the discretion of school staff.
Students are reminded that they are responsible for the safety and security of any digital device they bring to school. All students are expected to follow school and classroom guidelines for acceptable use. The school does not assume responsibility for any devices brought to school by students.
Students are also reminded that all digital recordings, audio or visual, may not be shared or distributed via the Internet or through social networking sites, without the written permission of those people recorded. These restrictions are in place for all students, staff and visitors to the school.
