The School values a healthy and peaceful educational environment.
All members of the School community, which includes students, parents and guardians, and the community members should be made aware of the negative effects that bullying can have on victims and the School in general, and should work towards ensuring that students can work in an environment without fear.
The School will do whatever is reasonably necessary and possible within its authority to eradicate bullying in all its forms.
The School takes a strong stance against bullying.
Bullying is unacceptable in our School and will not be tolerated.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a program which allows students to bring their own device to school for the purpose of enriching their academic learning experiences. In ICA, the implementation of BYOD in the Senior High School has allowed students to:
(a) do online research to fulfill academic requirements,
(b) accomplish non-graded online exercises and activities through software applications and learning management systems,
(c) have easy access to information from various sources,
(d) maximize the utilization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for learning and developing life-long skills and
(e) experience more fully 21st century learning with a holistic, creative, collaborative and global perspective.
The implementation of BYOD is determined by specific guidelines drafted into a policy to ensure its effectivity. The Student Agreement details the scope and nature of BYOD. The section on Student Responsibilities gives further information on the proper handling and the authorized or permissible use of the device and the school’s Wi-Fi network as well as the sanctions a student may face for violating the policy. Minimum gadget specifications to make sure that the device can function properly are enumerated in the section on Device Requirements.
