We have high expectations of our students and strive to support you in achieving your best. Just as traditional schools have a student code of conduct, there are similar expectations in our online school. Two way communication, between student and teacher is one of the expectations, and is essential for success in all online courses. CBe-learn students are strong digital citizens - using effective communication, attending virtual classes, completing assignments and projects, taking exams and respecting the intellectual property of others.
Always consider that you are in an academic online environment. Communicating respectfully with staff members and fellow students is an important life skill we expect all our school community members to practice.
Before you send any form of communication to your teacher or classmates, be sure to re-read your message. If you find yourself frustrated, it's important to cool down before sending an email or posting a message. Your teachers are here for you and will be happy to help solve the problem if you address it in a calm and polite manner.
It is important to establish a positive working relationship with your teachers and peers. This can be accomplished by following the basic principles of digital citizenship or "DQ", and ensuring you always approach others in a respectful manner. Although you might never meet your classmates face-to-face, it’s possible to have an effective working relationship with them. You might be paired up with a partner for a project, and it’s important to understand how you can work productively and positively in an online environment. Working effectively with others is another essential life skill that will serve you well into the future.
