ONLINE LEARNING CODE OF CONDUCT – please ensure that you and your child has read this
As we begin the shift to online learning I wanted to remind parents and students of the Vancouver Board of Education Acceptable Use of Technology Policy which can be found at the following link, https://aup.vsb.bc.ca/SitePages/grade4-12studentpolicy.aspx
Acceptable Use Policy for Computer Systems and Online Resources
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:
1. The Internet is a public place, and as such, general school rules for behavior apply.
2. The school network is an educational tool, not an entertainment medium.
3. Network storage areas will be treated like school lockers. Network administrators may review files and communications to maintain system integrity and ensure that users are using the system responsibly. Users should not expect that files will always be private.
4. Any unauthorized use of school systems or networks is prohibited. Examples of unauthorized use include but are not restricted to the following:
Sending or displaying offensive messages or pictures
Using obscene language
Harassing, insulting, or attacking others
Vandalizing and/or damaging computers, computer systems, or computer networks
Violating copyright laws by engaging in plagiarism, illegal downloads, etc.
Sharing password and user ID
Using another's ID or password
Trespassing on another's folders, work, or files
Employing the network for commercial purposes including buying or selling goods or services
Revealing the personal address, phone number, picture or other personal information of yourself or any other person without permission
Installing unauthorized files or software on school systems or networks
Accessing inappropriate Internet sites, online chat rooms and game sites
5. Inappropriate language and harassment will not be tolerated and will be dealt with just like it would be at school. You may be muted (able to watch but unable to participate) in Teams if you cannot maintain a safe learning environment for everyone. Other consequences may include suspension of your account and/or school discipline/suspension and/or legal action.
