Digital Citizenship

Utilizing technology and accessing the wireless network is an opportunity for students to personalize their learning by choosing with their parents which devices are most appropriate for their learning needs. Please review our schools digital citizenship policy with your child to ensure information is accessed in a safe and ethical manner.

Using cell phones for calling and texting is not permitted inside the building.  Should parents/ guardians or students need to contact each other please come to the office or ask your classroom teacher to use a school phone.

Due to FOIP and privacy concerns, students are not permitted to take photographs of each other at school. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation!

As with any personal belonging that a student brings to school, the school cannot be responsible for electronic devices that are lost, stolen or damaged. Students should see their teacher if they need to lock up personal devices.

Students will not have access to school servers or printers through their personal devices. As such they will need to utilize their CBE email, google drive or purchase and use a USB device to transfer files to the school network.

Software is NOT provided to students for student owned devices. School classes may utilize software applications that the student does not have on their device. Furthermore, the school is not able to provide technical support for student owned devices.

​​​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.​​​
