Virtual Classroom Privacy

A+ A-

The Board’s Privacy Office created this fact sheet to support educators, students and families to teach and learn in
virtual environments including the HUB and MS Teams with privacy in mind. Students and their families are required to
follow these guidelines when participating in both “live” (synchronous) classroom activities and those that allow
students to contribute as they are available (asynchronous classroom activities.) Educators will monitor classroom
activities to ensure these align with HWDSB’s expectations for privacy and information security and address any
concerns directly with students and their parent/guardian, as appropriate. Failure to respect these guidelines may
result in a suspension of online classroom privileges.

Please see HWDSB Virtual Classroom Guidelines for Privacy and Security for information about privacy in the remote learning environment.
