Digital Citizenship

Jack James High School is committed to meeting the needs of our diverse learners through flexible and integrated strategies.  At the core of these strategies is the use of technology as a means of accessing multiple digital resources, evaluating and interpreting information, as well as demonstrating key learning outcomes through multiple mediums. Jack James students will be able to connect their own personal devices to the Jack James wireless network. Specific electronic devices that students can use to access the Jack James wireless network include:

  • laptops
  • iPad/iPod Touch
  • smart phones
  • as well as other similar devices with wi-fi capability

It is important to note that the school will not provide these devices for students, nor will Jack James staff be responsible for device maintenance or upkeep.  The school is also not responsible for any electronic devices that are lost or stolen.

Students are asked to be responsible digital citizens, and avoid digital content that is deemed inappropriate.  Parents and students can consult CBE Administrative Regulation 1062 - Responsible Use of Electronic Information Resources for further information regarding digital responsibilities.  Students who are found to be accessing inappropriate material or disrupting the learning environment may face loss of network access, discussion with administration, possible suspension, and/or legal ramifications.  Use of digital technology in classrooms is a privilege and not a right, and is to be at the teachers’ discretion. Students and parents/guardians will be given a Technology Acceptable Use Agreement at the beginning of each school year.

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