    • vulgar or lewd descriptions or image of human bodies;
    • violent acts;
    • online gambling; or

Student printing is regulated by network print software. All students have a 100-page printing allotment maximum (50 pages per semester) from the school. Any additional pages are the responsibility of the student, from their home. Students will only be able to print in black and white as there is currently no student color printer. Students can also arrange with their teacher to send their work electronically (via D2L or email).

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.
