Tips for Protecting Student Privacy on Social Media

 

  CIPA  

CIPA Compliance Statement:  As mandated by the federal law enacted by Congress to address concerns about access to offensive content over the Internet on school and library computers, the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was passed. Our school and library computers are compliant with CIPA, providing technologies that go above and beyond content filtering to ensure our children are protected.

 

  Social Media Agreement & Guidelines  

Website & Social Media Agreement Form – Click Here

This agreement must be submitted by any person creating a website or social media account which represents a department, organization, class, club, etc. of Bridge City ISD. It should be completed only after reviewing the Website & Social Media Guidelines located below. If representing multiple organizations, please submit a separate form for each account that will be created.

 

Website & Social Media Guidelines

At Bridge City ISD, teachers, students, staff, and other school community members use social networking/media as a way to connect with others, share educational resources, create educational content, enhance the classroom experience, and network within and outside of the school community. While social networking is fun and valuable, there are some risks to keep in mind when using these tools. In the social media world, the lines are often blurred between what is public or private, personal or professional.

Below are guidelines to follow when members of the school community are representing Bridge City ISD in web and social media spaces, regardless of whether these are considered professional or personal spaces.

 

Use good judgement

  • We expect good judgement in all situations.
  • Represent in a way that will make you and others proud and reflect well on the district.
  • Know and follow the district’s Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Set privacy settings that are appropriate for the type of group for which you are representing.
  • Regardless of your privacy settings, assume that all of the information you have shared on your website or social network is public information.

Be respectful

  • Always treat others in a respectful, positive, and considerate manner.

Be responsible and ethical

  • Share and interact in a way that will enhance your reputation, the reputation of others, and the reputation of the district, rather than damage them.
  • When posting on behalf of a public school, take care to remain free of religious or political views.
  • Never blindly repost a link without looking at the content first.
  • Be sure to follow site-specific guidelines.

Respect private and personal information

  • Always respect the privacy of school community members.
  • To ensure your safety, as well as others, be cautious about the type and amount of personal information you provide.
  • Avoid talking about personal schedules or situations.
  • Do not publish, post, or release information that is considered confidential or private. Online “conversations” are never private.
  • Never share or transmit personal information of students, parents, faculty, staff, or colleagues online.

Post images with care

  • Respect the brand, trademark, copyright, logo, and/or images of the district.
  • Do not post photos of students who are on the “Do Not Photo” list.

And if you don’t get it right...

  • Be sure to correct any mistake you make immediately, and make it clear what you’ve done to fix the mistake.
  • Apologize for the mistake if the situation warrants it.
  • If it’s a major mistake (e.g., exposing private information or reporting confidential information), let your supervisor know immediately so the district can take the proper steps to help minimize the impact it may have.
