Creating Cybersafety Use Agreements

Comprehensive acceptable use agreements (referred to in the kit as use agreements) play a vital role in developing and maintaining an effective school cybersafety program. By providing information on the cybersafety initiatives taken by the school, as well as the school’s expectations of staff, students and their parents, use agreements emphasize the role played by the whole school community in the maintenance of a cybersafe school environment.

There are four use agreement templates that schools can download and personalize, all of which were updated in 2007 from earlier versions:

Individual districts are encouraged to decide which use agreement will best meet the needs of their students. However, NetSafe envisages that most students in elementary school would be issued with the primary – junior agreement and middle school students with the primary – middle/intermediate agreement. The secondary students’ agreement is intended for high school students.
