Training Overview

School Tech Troubles? Manage Staff Social Media

School districts across the country are grappling with the ever-present challenge of staff social media use. The line between personal and professional online activity can blur, leading to potential legal headaches – disciplinary actions challenged in court, employee privacy concerns, and even First Amendment questions.


School districts often have acceptable use policies to address use of district technology, but addressing use of other outside and personal technology raises many legal concerns. Is such conduct protected by law or by the U.S. Constitution? Can a school gain or demand access to such outside personal accounts?


Register today to anticipate, plan, and learn all you need to know about the law and acceptable technology use for staff.
