The use of electronic devices is now a part of daily life for most students. These devices can help student learning and engage students in the classroom. Our school uses electronic devices such as computers, interactive whiteboards, tablets and other mobile devices in the classroom to enhance academic achievement and help motivate students. Through the use of the school's network, access to learning resources and applications (apps) help all students meet learning objectives.
To help protect all students, proper use guidelines and practices for these devices must be established, followed
All parents/guardians must sign an Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement prior to students being permitted
to use/access technology and online resources at school. The purpose of the agreement is to:
-Ensure students and parents/guardians are aware of the conditions under which students are permitted
to use technology;
-Outline expectations and responsibilities of students and appropriate and inappropriate use of
We ask parents and guardians to monitor use and to discuss these regulations and the proper use of technology
with their children and we thank you for your support.

Some online tools and apps are referred to as “cloud services”. This means that students will store saved work
online. Using cloud services, or online resources, will allow students to work on projects outside of school time.
Schools will provide each student a user name, password and email address. To gain access to online
resources and applications, students will need to use the provided account, password, and email address.
Online privacy is a top priority for our school and the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District
(District) and we protect the online work of our students to the best of our ability.

All students are expected to abide by the school’s Code of Conduct when using technology, accessing the
Internet and interacting online.

All schools now provide Internet access for teaching and learning. The Internet contains a wealth of educational
material for the classroom but can also contain material that is not appropriate. The District filters web sites
believed to be inappropriate for students. The District cannot and does not guarantee that inappropriate material
can be completely filtered.
Students will be assigned a gmail account for email purposes, e.g. JDoe_s@nlesd.ca
. All student email
addresses have the underscore (_) and ‘s’ contained in them.
For more information, go to the District’s E-mail Policy and associated Regulations.
The District recognizes that social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.) is a tool that can further
enhance teaching and learning in our schools as well as communication between home and school and with the
public. Students may have the opportunity to access various forms of social media at school. Further information will be provided at the school level.
For more information, go to the District’s Social Media Policy and Terms of Reference for Students.
The use of portable electronic devices (e.g., iPads, iPhones, laptop computers) is now part of daily life for most
students. These devices promote student engagement, creativity and learning. Many schools now have sets of
devices available for classroom use. Students may also be able to use their own portable electronic devices at
school, in accordance with consistent, school-wide guidelines as determined by the school administration and
