SMART Edu Club Terms and conditions
The following outlines expectations for behaviour in our programs.
During our programs, which include video communication, you will join the platform to hear and be heard by others. While in this communication channel, you will:
- Refrain from speaking when others are speaking
- Listen when others are speaking to you
- Use text chat to communicate with others while someone is speaking
- Use ‘Raise your hand’ feature to indicate you have a question
- Use respectful and appropriate behaviour, language and tone when speaking
- Avoid behaviour found to be disruptive to communication by others
During our programs which include text communication, you will be able to type both public and private messages to others. To ensure our agreements are kept, you will:
- Acknowledge and respond to messages sent in chat
- Avoid spamming in chat by sending repeated messages that don’t contribute to valuable communication
- Use respectful and appropriate language (this includes on signs and books and all other text)
- Avoid sharing links to outside online locations
Our community guidelines stipulate that children should not share private and identifiable information with one another or communicate with each other outside of our programs without parental permission. All interactions in our platforms and classes, including private messaging, may be moderated to ensure this. Please understand, however, that we are not able to monitor all interactions between students. We encourage parents to stay abreast of children’s online connections both inside and outside of our programs to encourage positive online friendships.
Process for Resolving Issues
When a member of our community fails to follow the community guidelines, the following process will be followed to correct and ensure our community agreements continue to be followed. When a camper’s behaviour is found to be in violation of our guidelines:
A camper acts in way that is disruptive or harmful to themselves or others or generally against the spirit of our community guidelines.
A co-teacher points out the issue and gives a brief verbal warning or reminder.
The camper has an opportunity to correct their behaviour following the warning. If they do not, the camper will be contacted privately by a co-teacher to address the issue more directly. The co-teacher will state the issue and help the camper understand the reasoning, work to understand why the camper is having this issue, and establish a clear expectation for what behaviour needs to change.
The camper has an opportunity to correct their behaviour following the one-on-one. If they do not, the camper is taken aside for a second conversation where the co-teacher will explain that the camper is being removed from the program until a conversation can be had with their parent regarding their behaviour. Following this, the co-teacher will document the incident and inform the Program Manager of the issue with their account of what happened.
The Program Manager will get in touch with the camper’s parent to inform them of the incident and explain the camper has been removed. The parent will be asked to have a conversation with their child regarding the issue, review the community guidelines, and send a note of reflection on the camper’s behaviour to the Program Manager. Once these steps have been completed and the suspension period has ended, the camper will be allowed to return to Connected Camps programs.
Following their return, this process begins again just as it would for any other camper (previous incidents will not impact steps 1-5). A week following the incident, Connected Camps will update the parent on how the camper’s behaviour that week. If a second incident occurs after the first removal or the camper’s behaviour has not adequately improved following their return, the camper will be asked to take a longer break from the program before being able to return. The Program Manager, in consultation with relevant co-teacher, will determine the length of the break.
When we email you we will include:
- The date the specific incident with your child took place
- Documented details of the incident
- Instructions for steps to take to return to our programs
