Ahavas Bais Yaakov believes that the key to successfully raising a digital native is instilling a healthy relationship with technology, through a Torah perspective. Education on digital citizenship in the classroom and in the world will be an important aspect of Ahavas Bais Yaakov’s curriculum. In class, students will only have access to filtered computers.
Students who have smart devices at home (i.e. phones, tablets, laptops) are obligated to have a school approved filter.
No student may have access to anyone else’s device that does not have an appropriate filter.
Students may not bring personal devices to school. Personal devices that are brought to school will be confiscated and disciplinary action will be taken.
An Ahavas Bais Yaakov student may not have any presence on social media. Students found to have accounts on any social media platform will meet with disciplinary action.
Technology is constantly changing. Cognizant of this fact, this topic will be an active, ongoing conversation with our parent body and rabbonim.
