Employee Social Media Policy
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.”
