33 Discussion points for drafting a policy Do teachers and support staff identify themselves as an employee on their social media profiles? In other words, are they transparent? (they should be) Will your staff converse with parents, media, or students? How will they respond to negative comments online? What is considered professional; when does it become personal?

34 Discussion points for drafting a policy Who and how will you monitor (and enforce) the policy? Do we need different policies for students, staff and administration? Should there be more than one voice?

35 Social Media participation policy Where do we publish it? On a Facebook Tab On a Social Media Resources page on school district website On a blogs About Us page Embedded in a Twitter background
