Wallingford Schools Propose Social Media Policy

by Categorized: Connecticut, Government, Social Media Date:

The Wallingford Board of Education was presented with a draft social media policy Monday night.

An article in the Meriden Record-Journal said the draft proposal was created after consultation with the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Students can be disciplined for using social media to “harass or defame, to create a hostile work environment, or to violate any law or school board policy.”  Students will not be allowed to friend a teacher or administrator either.

Does your school have a social media policy?
