Technology Code of Conduct

EIS provides internet access to students and teachers in a number of classrooms and computer labs throughout the school.

We believe that the internet offers vast, diverse and unique resources that can aid in the provision of educational excellence through resource sharing, innovation and communication. Students are introduced to positive computer ethics and are taught the skills to be respectful and safe "cybercitizens" in the digital age.

The internet is an electronic highway connecting millions of computers and individual subscribers all over the world. At EIS teachers and students have access to :

  • electronic mail communication with people all over the world
  • information and news from educational sites
  • public domain software and shareware
  • discussion groups on a variety of subjects and topics
  • library and university catalogues and other similar sites

With access to computers and people both nationally and internationally, there is an availability of material that may not be considered to be of educational value in the context of the school setting. At EIS we believe that the valuable information and interaction available on this worldwide network far outweighs the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of our school.

Students' access must be consistent with the educational objectives of the school. The transmission of any material in violation of any law or regulations is prohibited. This includes the download and use of copyright material, threatening and pornographic material, the use of product advertisement or political lobbying.

Students must treat all computer equipment with care. They will be held responsible for any items that are improperly handled and/or broken intentionally.


Internet Network Etiquette
All students are expected to abide by the generally accepted rules of Internet network etiquette which includes:

  • be polite
  • respect others' privacy

Disciplinary Action
The use of the Internet is a privilege, not a right. Inappropriate use may result in the cancellation of those privileges. Staff intervention strategies such as teacher/student conferences, auxiliary staff/student intervention and teacher/parent contacts are made in cases of user policy violations. Any or all of the following intervention strategies and disciplinary actions may be used by administrators:

  • Stage Principal and/or Stage Supervisor / student conference or reprimand
  • student to seek assistance in learning the proper procedure before they are allowed to reuse computer equipment
  • Stage Principal and/or Stage Supervisor / parent conference
  • referrals and conferences with various support staff
  • behavioral contracts
  • student to serve a maximum of one day suspension from using computer equipment
  • confiscation of inappropriate item or items
  • restitution or restoration
