Digital Citizenship Resources
The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District recognizes our students are facing increasing challenges and pressures from social media and the Internet. While we are aware there are many positives associated with these technologies, we also acknowledge that at times they may be used inappropriately. Great strides in educating our students about Internet and social media safety have been made in recent years, but we believe we can and should do even more. Our Internet and Social Media Safety (ISMS) Program continues to provide our students with important information and instruction on the use of such communications mediums, playing a key role in helping young learners make good decisions in real life and online.
Each member of our community has a role to play in helping our young people understand the consequences of questionable online behaviour and a responsibility to model good behaviour in our electronic activities.
Below you will find a list of resources used by the school and district to further educate our students in their online lives, and to assist parents with their integral role.
School Technology Policy
It is important to note that technology, social media, and Google Apps usage is expected to follow the rules laid out in the school`s Behaviour Matrix. If these rules are not followed then these violations may result in consequences for the student that may include, but would not be limited to, removal of technology access, removal from class, parent conferences or possible suspension. At Roncalli we hope that our students behaviour online reflects the expectations that we have for them in real life.
