​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.​​​

Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship & Admirable Use Policy

All members of our school community are expected to be digital citizens who demonstrate respect, responsible behavior and overall good character when using technology and/or engaging in online activities. The use of technology is an integral part of teaching and learning at our school. Teachers and students use digital technologies to access information, communicate ideas, and demonstrate fundamental understandings. 

Students may use their own laptop or tablet, at their teacher’s discretion, to personalize their learning in the classroom, interfacing through CBE Connect Wireless. The use of personal devices by students with the guidance of parents and teachers will assist in addressing individual student needs for learning. 

All students are expected to follow school guidelines for Acceptable use of Electronic Devices and Networked Information Resources (AR 1062with both school-owned and student-owned devices. 

Peter Lougheed School and its staff are NOT responsible for lost/stolen or damaged personal devices. 

The following activities are inappropriate for students:

  • Use of electronic/digital devices (cell phones, computers, cameras, etc.) in gym change rooms or washrooms at any time. 
  • Sending or displaying offensive messages or pictures/images 
  • Using obscene language, harassing, insulting or attacking others 
  • Any online behaviour that negatively impacts the school environment 
  • Intentionally damaging computer equipment/school technology, the network or other people’s digital work

  • Using cell phones to make calls, text, engage in social media activities, play games etc, during instructional times (parents who wish to communicate with their children during class time should go through the office, as texting and phone calls are not permitted during instructional time). 


If a student fails to abide by Peter Lougheed’s Acceptable Use Policy, parents/guardians will be notified and the student may receive one or all of the following disciplinary actions: 

  • Confiscation of Personal Electronic Device

​Bringing Your Own Device to School

Students are welcome to bring their personal electronic devices to school as part of a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or Personally Owned Devices (POD) framework. Students should understand how a device works and how its use supports their learning. All devices are subject to approval by the school and teacher. Students are responsible for any devices they bring to school. The school is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.

There is no requirement for students to bring their own device. Students will have access to devices at the school needed to support their learning.

Students must use their device responsibly. You can look on the CBE website for more information on bringing devices to school.​​
