Schools of the Board utilize school websites and official school Twitter accounts as a method of sharing information with families and the Catholic community. As stewards of the environment, this move towards a reduction in the use of paper reduces waste and promotes conservation. Our families still have the option of receiving corespondence in paper format.
The Board and schools will update and monitor social media accounts during office hours, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday. Occasionally, we may be active in our posts and responses outside of regular office hours during events or to inform of important information and emergencies.
How do I find my school or the Board on Twitter?
Please visit School Listings and click your school’s Twitter icon to find your school’s Twitter address. Once you see the Twitter page, save the address using your browser or follow it using your Twitter account.
If you require assistance please contact your school principal or email the Communications Department at email@example.com
Online Communication Expectations for Students, Parents and Staff
All online communication is expected to be respectful and appropriate. We encourage students, parents and staff to T.H.I.N.K. before you post/tweet/reply. Ask yourself: Is it TRUE? Is it HURTFUL? Is it ILLEGAL? Is it NECESSARY? Is it KIND?
Everyone should be aware that participating in online social media sites and targeting or posting inappropriately about staff, students or community members will be dealt with accordingly.
Online activity that is not in support of the Board’s policies and procedures and all inappropriate online content will be addressed by the school administrator or by school board management. ONline activity which affects students, staff or our community at large will be treated the same as verbal comments. Please use social media responsibly and address any concerns directly with your child’s school.
Being socially responsible is a focus for your Board and we hold these standards in high regard. Inappropriate use of social media directed at staff, students, community members or school board administration can result in criminal or civil legal action.
