Use of the school’s computer network and the Internet provides great educational benefits to students. Access to both is provided as a privilege to students who agree to act in a considerate and responsible manner. Please follow these guidelines:
Acceptable Use Policy for Computer Systems and Online Resources
Access to school technology shall only be by the person(s) permitted to do so. Holders of school accounts are responsible for all activity that occurs within their accounts. Computer and network services are shared resources and must be used with consideration for others.
School technology services shall not be used for illegal, obscene or inappropriate purposes, or in support of such activities. Inappropriate use of technology services includes, but is not limited to:
- transmission of materials in violation of Canadian law,
- transmission, storage or duplication of pornographic, abusive, obscene or threatening material,
- transmission or duplication of material in violation of copyright law,
- participation in pyramid or chain mail,
- attempts to vandalize school, district or external systems including attempts to destroy data of another user via virus or other means or accessing unauthorized sites, and/or
- revealing your or another person’s personal information such as address, phone number, picture or other data without parental consent.
Failure to comply with these responsibilities may result in student suspension and/or termination of on-line privileges.
Cellular Phones and Electronic Devices
Students are expected to use electronic devices responsibly in and out of school. Cell phones and other electronic devices must be turned off during instructional time unless they are being used for active learning prescribed by the teacher. Students who do not comply with the Cell Phone and Electronic Device Usage Policy may have their cell phone or electronic device confiscated by school staff. Students can pick up their device from the teacher or administrator in the main office at the end of the school day.
