Social Media Now Addressed in Code of Conduct

Employees must complete training on recommended use and guidelines for social media.

Social media and digital behavior has been addressed in the revised Employee Code of Conduct which now requires that employees complete annual training designed to help them "make wise decisions regarding interactions with students, families, members of the community and colleagues in a digital/cyber environment."

The Social Media Guidelines training can be completed online along with other Required Training through Blackboard. Courses must be completed by Nov. 1.

A social media task force made up of students, parents, teachers, principals, counselors and district personnel spent several months reviewing social media polices from other school districts as well as private businesses and organizations to help define expectations for staff. It made recommendations to the Board of Education, which in July approved the revised language and required training.
