Personal Electronic Devices

The Halton Catholic District School Board believes our students need to be well prepared to engage and be successful in an evolving technological society.  At OLV, we want our students to learn to use technology responsibly to gather, evaluate, construct and share knowledge in a 21st Century world, and become collaborative contributors, responsible citizens, and self-directed, responsible, lifelong learners.

In the classroom, students will be using devices responsibly, and only with the specific permission and direction of the teacher or other staff member.  At OLV, all classrooms have access to school computers, laptops and iPads.  Technology will not be used every day for every lesson.  The HCDSB has set out specific principles and expectations for all users, including students, which govern the legal, ethical and responsible behavior related to the use of technology.

Technology and technology resources include (but are not limited to) computers, tablets, cellular phones and smart phones, mobile devices, servers, networks, Internet services, computer applications and programs, data, email and collaboration tools and third-party Internet service providers to the Board.  All technology, including personally owned devices, must be used appropriately at all times when on HCDSB sites.

Individuals who do not comply with HCDSB policy will be subject to appropriate consequences consistent with the school’s Code of Conduct.  To access the full HCDSB Operating Policy I-43: Use of Technology and Digital Citizenship please refer to the Board website (www.hcdsb.org).  Questions about this policy should be directed to the Principal.

Digital citizenship is defined as the norms of legal, ethical and responsible behavior related to the appropriate use of technology.  As individuals, we live and work in a world where many people are connected to their devices at all times so we need to use technology effectively and respectfully.  Teachers actively teach digital citizenship, as we believe it is very important to the development and safety of our students.

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Policy:

Teachers may choose to allow students to bring in their own personal devices to work with in class.  We understand that not all parents can or want to send their child to school with a device, and this will never be an expectation.   If the classroom teacher deems it appropriate to allow students to bring in personal devices, they will send home a letter explaining the policy.

Should a student choose to bring a device to school for any reason, please note that they are responsible for the care, maintenance and security of their personal electronic devices – the school is not responsible for the replacement of lost, stolen or damaged items.
