Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship frames the rationale and conditions for the appropriate use of personal devices by all people.  At Abbeydale School, students will NOT be allowed to access the LAWN network with their personal devices unless there is an educational reason and teacher invitation for including these devices into the learning environment.  If you feel there is an educational reason for your child to be using their device during instructional time (school day), please contact your child's teacher. 

Admirable Use of Electronic Devices

1. Respect Yourself

  • Keep your CBE account passwords and other personal information confidential.
  • Practice responsible conduct and digital etiquette when using electronic information resources.
  • Inform your teacher if something on an electronic device makes you feel uncomfortable or is inappropriate.
  • Use electronic information resources in a responsible manner that support learning and demonstrates exemplary character.
  • Care for personal devices is the individual student's responsibility.

2. Respect Others

  • Use appropriate language and communicate respectfully while using electronic devices.
  • Respect the property and creative works of others.
  • Protect and respect personal information of others.

3. Respect this Place

  • Use all electronic resources in a responsible manner that does not damage computer systems, data or networks.
  • Leave the school equipment so that it is ready to be used by others.
  • Use electronic equipment in the classroom environment to support learning in consultation with your teacher.

Student are expected to be responsible digital citizens who demonstrate exemplary character through an understanding of personal and civic responsibility.  Any violation of the above expectations may result in disciplinary measures as outlined in the CBE Administrative Regulation 6005 - Student Code of Conduct.

Each situation is dealt with on an individual basis and breach of policy may result in:

  • Restriction or loss of technology privileges.
  • School based disciplinary consequences.
  • 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.​​​
