EUSD has both a Board Policy and an Administrative Regulation governing the use of official district-sponsored social media channels. The full text of the policies can be viewed by clicking the links at the bottom of the page. However, for your convenience, we’ve cited important passages from Administrative Regulation AR1114 here:
- Social media means any online platform for collaboration, interaction, and active participation, including, but not limited to, social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, or blogs.
- Official district social media platform is a site authorized by the Superintendent or designee. Sites that have not been authorized by the Superintendent or designee but that contain content related to the district or comments on district operations, such as a site created by a parent-teacher organization, booster club, or other school-connected organization or a student’s or employee’s personal site, are not considered official district social media platforms.
- The superintendent or designee shall ensure that official district social media platforms are regularly monitored. Staff members responsible for monitoring content may remove posts based on viewpoint-neutral considerations, such as lack of relation to the site’s purpose or violation of the district’s policy, regulation, or content guidelines.
- Inappropriate posts include those that:
- a. Are obscene, libelous, or so incite students as to create a clear and present danger of the commission of unlawful acts on school premises, violation of school rules, or substantial disruption of the school’s orderly operation
- b. Are not related to the stated purpose of the site, including, but not limited to, comments of a commercial nature, political activity, and comments that constitute discrimination or harassment
