The school will provide all technology necessary for learning at school. If a phone is seen, heard or used without teacher permission during the class time, the phone will be taken and it will remain with the teacher and be returned before the end of the day. If the offence is repeated or if the student refuses to cooperate at any time, school administrators may assign additional consequences and confiscate the phone. A parent/guardian may be asked to pick it up.
Students must adhere to all Division policies when using student-owned or school electronic devices of any kind in the school setting. Students cannot take photos and video of other students or staff without their consent. Photos and video should not be posted to the Internet without the parental consent of the featured student.
Worrisome behaviours may be brought to our attention in a variety of ways, including alerts being shared regarding a student's activity while using Division technology or Division accounts.
Due to the fact that these electronic items are expensive and could be damaged or stolen, it is recommended that parents allow their children to bring them to school only if they are responsible enough to take care of the item. The school is NOT responsible for lost or stolen articles.
Students are encouraged to leave their cell phones in thier lockers.
Technology must be handed in before an exam.
Racette administration recognizes the value of handheld technology; however, technology etiquette is required at the school.
