Acceptable Use Guidelines Example

  • The following acceptable use guideline is posted to the school district’s Facebook page, and provides an example that can be adopted for other CCA CSD-related social media sites:
     
    Clear Creek Amana Community School District has created this Facebook page to serve as an additional means to share news, provide information, and facilitate communications within our school district community. We thank all of the Facebook users who “like” our page and contribute to our online community. Messages posted to this Facebook page do not necessarily represent the views of Clear Creek Amana Community School District. CCA CSD reserves the right to remove comments and/or report users who post comments which, in the school district’s sole discretion, bully, intimidate, or harass any individual; contain obscenity, nudity or gratuitous violence; are commercial solicitations; are factually erroneous, libelous, or wildly off-topic; are from anonymous blog trolls; constitute incitement to violence or violation of law or District policy, or which constitute true threats; or that otherwise violate State law, school district policy, or the social media site’s own policies.

Best Practice

    1. Establish separate accounts for personal and professional use.
    2. Content - Make sure the district has consent from parents on record through PowerSchool.
    3. Think twice before posting.
    4. Know your privacy settings—and their limits.
    5. Learn the district policies and guidelines.
    6. Remain positive and professional in every post.
