Ethics and Safety

Young people need guidance to use technology and the internet in an ethical and safe manner. Southridge is aware of this and promotes the ethical and safe use of technology to our students and our community.

Southridge believes that educators need to help guide our students in the ethical and responsible use of technologies such as laptops and smart phones. The virtual world (which is more a place than a thing) that today’s teens inhabit is largely run by social rules that the teens themselves have created over the past few years. Southridge directly addresses this by openly teaching students and the school community about ethical and responsible use social media, email, and other online activities.

Below are the policies which guide our student behaviour with cell phones, mobile devices and our computer network.
