EDUCATION MATTERS BY RON MARKS 

The BYOT pamphlet from the Bible Hill Junior High School refers to good digital citizenship.  The pamphlet outlines some of the practices that students must adhere to. The section on good digital citizenship reads, “Today’s students are going to live and work in a world dominated by technology. They need to learn to use it safely, effectively, ethically, and respectfully.

CCRSB’s Code of Conduct and academic integrity apply to the use of technology whether students are accessing information from school or home.

Students participating in Bring Your Own Technology must adhere to CCRSB’s Code of Conduct and Board Policies; students must also:

– Take full responsibility for his or her technology. The school is not responsible for the security of student-owned technology or its contents.

– Keep technology in a silent mode while at school and while riding school buses.

– Acknowledge that the school’s network filters will be applied to connections to the Internet and will not attempt to bypass them.

– Understand that infecting the network with a Virus, Trojan, or program designed to damage, alter, destroy, or provide access to unauthorized data or information is in violation of the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) and will result in disciplinary actions.

– Realizes that processing or accessing information on school property related to “hacking,” altering, or bypassing network security policies in violation of the AUP and will result in disciplinary actions.

– Understand that CCRSB has the right to collect and examine any technology that is suspected of causing problems or was the source of an attack or virus infection.

– Realize and accept that printing from personal technology may not be possible at school and may only be done with permission.

– Use personally owned technology for appropriate communication.

– Not take, create or distribute pictures, audio or video without permission.

– Fully charge their personal technology prior to school and run their device on battery power while at school.
