What content and materials will be shared through the online services?

Students may have the ability to create, store and share any schoolwork-related content, such as photographs, audio, video recordings, and non-classroom-related information. Where this work contains personally identifiable information of students or others, we will guide students on how to handle it safely and respectfully and to seek appropriate permissions.

How do we protect personal and other information?

Victorian privacy laws require schools to handle personal and health information in accordance with the appropriate principles, such as the Information Privacy Principles. Our school will ensure that information is handled in accordance with the school’s policies, including Schools’ Privacy Policy, Online Rules and Best Practice, Onsite Rules and Best Practice.

In addition, our Partner Schools will have enacted Cybersafety and Responsible Use of Digital Technologies and Acceptable Use Agreements for technologies used for Monash Tech School Programs delivered at their schools. These will be used to explain to your school community how our Partner Schools expect online learning systems to be used at school and at home. 

We will manage your and your child’s information, including how it is stored and how long it is kept, in accordance with the Department’s Records Management Policy for schools.

We will help your child to use online learning systems safely by providing them with technical or any other assistance they require. You can also assist by having conversations with your child about eSafety and by ensuring that your child is comfortable raising any issues with you and their teacher.

We recommend that parents monitor their child when learning from home and contact the school if they have any concerns.
