Employee Policy Regarding Social Media
In our attempt to protect you our employees and our students, we have established the following policy for employee use of social media.
“Employees should not communicate with students on student’s social media pages or accounts. Employees should not actively peruse student’s social media pages or accounts unless given permission to do so by the Principals or Head of School. In case an employee inadvertently becomes aware of a discipline issue or safety issue of a student through social media, they should contact their principal or supervisor, before responding to the student.
Employees should not have any expectations of privacy on their personal social media pages or accounts. As social media exists primarily in the public realm, employee’s social media pages or accounts should reflect the standards and expectation of their role as employees at VCS.
VCS will have official school related social media pages or accounts that will communicate school related information. These pages or accounts will be monitored by school officials to assure proper use. With approval from their supervisor, employees may set up “group” facebook accounts for their classes, sports, clubs or other official school groups.”
