The Village School recognizes that to be “builders of the future,” the presence of technology holds an important place in our classrooms. Our goal is to help students become discerning consumers of digital media and active producers of content, using technology to create and innovate. The guiding principle for the use of technology and digital media at the Village School is that it must be purposeful and meaningful.
For the school’s “Responsible Computer, Network, and Internet Use” policy, please refer to the VSNB Student and Family Handbook available here: https://vsnb.org/handbooks/.
Online Safety & Security
Keeping students safe on their school-provided devices is of paramount importance to the Village School. School-issued accounts are monitored through Bark for Schools—a service that helps us better protect our students, both at school and at home. The intent is not to try to catch kids doing bad things; it is to try to educate them on how to be safe, how to be protected, and how to be appropriate with their online and digital footprint.

Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
