Social Media

With the ever-increasing use of social media platforms (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, TikTok, Instagram), it is imperative that all students, including those in any extracurricular activities, clubs, groups and leadership organizations understand that they will be expected to adhere to appropriate standards regarding any social media that causes a disruption or unsafe environment at school including photos, posts, instant messages, texts, tweets, snapchats, etc. If use of social media appears to be disruptive to school and/or a safe school violation, social media may be monitored by the administration.

Any use of social media platforms by students, on or off campus, may be monitored by the administration and disciplinary action may be taken, including, but not limited to, suspension, expulsion, removing a student from a team, group, activity, and/or organization. Standards related to appropriate use of social media platforms include, but are not limited to: cyber-bullying; harassment (all forms and directed at either fellow students or school employees); lewd, suggestive, or sexually explicit posts/photos; discriminatory remarks/posts; posts/photos depicting or promoting illegal activities (alcohol, drugs, e-cigs), re-tweeting any/all of the above, etc.

Any postings to social media, which causes harm to students or staff members, or which causes a major disruption to the school, will be investigated by school administration and school resource officers for violation and consequences in accordance with District Policy 5200.
