Personal Electronic Device (PED) Policy
Technology in the classroom is used to support learning. Grade 4-6 students bringing their own devices need to use them in a responsible and respectful way in accordance with CBE policy and the Privacy Laws of Alberta.
Responsible use of any device will be at the teacher’s discretion during classes, that is, teachers need to give students permission to use the devices within the classroom environment.
PED is the responsibility of the student who owns it. It is expected that a student’s personal device is used only by that student and not shared with others. It is the responsibility of the student/parent if a device is lost, stolen or damaged.
Parents, please do not call or text your child directly during class time. It is imperative that communications during the school day goes through the office in order that students can access support.
Here are a few examples of what is allowed and what is not:
|Allowed with Teacher's Permission||Not Allowed at Anytime|
|Listening to music while
completing school work. |
(only allowed if it helps
| Taking pictures and videos|
|Google Apps for school work||Any use of the device outside of the classroom
(e.g. hallway, lunch & recess)
|Reminders / Calendar||Using Social Media|
Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, etc.)
|Educational Apps to support
learning||Texting or making phone calls|
|Effective research||Constantly changing
songs and sharing music with friends|
Teachers and Administration reserve the right to decide if a PED is being used inappropriately.
