The staff and leadership of QSI Virtual School are committed to ensuring a safe virtual learning environment for our students.
All employees of QSI Virtual School must report suspected incidences of child abuse or neglect whenever the staff member has reasonable cause to believe that a child has suffered or is at risk of suffering abuse or neglect. Reporting and follow up of all suspected incidences of child abuse or neglect will proceed in accordance with our school's Child Protection Policy. QSI Virtual School strives to be a safe haven for all of our students and will continue to make child protection and safeguarding a top priority
Quality Schools International promotes the importance of applying the QSI Success Orientations as part of its Child Safety and Protection policy and procedures throughout the QSI communities at large. Abuse and neglect of minors are not only violations of children’s basic human rights, but also constitute impediments to learning and development, and adversely affect children’s physical, emotional, and social well-being. It is imperative that children are provided with a safe and secure environment in which to develop, thrive, and be successful, regardless of ethnic origins, religious beliefs, or cultural heritage. As such, it is expected that all QSI schools develop a comprehensive child safety and protection plan.
As an online school, technology and the use of the Internet are essential parts of learning and teaching at QSI Virtual School. One of our top priorities is ensuring the safe and responsible use of the Internet and digital communication technologies by QVS students. QVS is committed to educating our students about the benefits and risks of using technology, and we strive to provide safeguards and awareness for students to empower them to control and monitor their online experiences. We support our students in learning how to interact online safely, as well as how to report unwanted online behaviors and the misuse of school platforms.
