All St. Catherine's students in grades 7-12 have a laptop. The laptops are not intended to replace any part of the curriculum, but rather are used in the areas they are most useful: research, organization, data management, collaboration and communication. As teachers are instructing students on how to use this tool to fulfill their course work, they are proactively educating them on digital responsibility and guiding them on research and how discern reliable information.
We are continuously focusing on the digital responsibility initiative to ensure that our community is safe online. Through community and parent meetings and workshops, classes with faculty and students, and a strong online presence in the form of a Digital Responsibility page on our website, we are being as vigilant as we can to see that our community is working with, researching on, and using the Internet responsibly, ethically and wisely.
