Guiding Our Practice

 

The framework below is in concordance with our numerous district policies, codes of conduct, as well as federal and provincial laws. It is important for all of us to read and understand these documents, found in the Reference section.

 

This section is targeted to educators. It highlights the responsibilities of all educators and the resources supporting them. Much like the Rights and Responsibilities document, this framework is also divided under four key headings:

  • Privacy
  • Copyright
  • Use and access to information
  • Behavioural expectations when using digital tools in an educational setting

 

RESPONSIBILITIES

       RESOURCES

Privacy

 

I have the responsibility to:

  • Keep my students’ personal information, including their names and images, private, unless parents are informed.
  • Ensure personal information can only be stored on a server located in Canada, unless parents are informed.
  • Report inaccuracies and inappropriate uses of personal information.
