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

  • Students will comply with the Acceptable Use of Digital Devices Agreement.
  • Students will keep private and use their own username and password.
  • Students will be supervised when using technology at all times.

2. Student Learning
