Digital Citizenship

Digital citizenship is having the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to demonstrate responsible and respectful behavior when using technology or participating in digital environments. This goes beyond email etiquette and avoiding plagiarism to encompass all elements of digital engagement, in particular, protecting private information, staying safe online, and knowing how to deal with bullying in the digital world, whether you’re a target or a bystander.  

Technology is an important part of our world and our learning. It is important that we, children and adults alike, use technology appropriately. 

The three themes of Digital Citizenship that we will be focusing on this year at Chief Justice Milvain School are:

  • Respect for Self
  • Respect for Others
  • Respect for Our Environment

Please review the Chief Justice Milvain School Acceptable Use Policy sent home with your forms package in September. Also available as a download from this webpage.

We encourage all parents/guardians to inform themselves of system policies and procedures around digital citizenship.  These include:

Violation of the CJM Acceptable Use Policy: It is expected that  the Policy is followed. If there is a violation of the Policy, each situation is dealt with in consideration of individual and mitigating factors. The following are possible consequences:

  • Conference with student about the issue 
  • Inform parents 
  • A restriction or loss of computer privileges 
  • Restorative projects 
  • School based disciplinary consequences, which may involve school administration 
  • Paying for any damaged resulting from intentional misuse 
  • Police intervention and/or legal action

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 about how we support students to develop online safety skills and be good digital citizens.​​​
