MCPS Has Developed Social Media Best Practices
MCPS has developed social media best practices for employees to provide guidance regarding good digital citizenship. Social media can be a great tool to enhance education and learning, but it must be used responsibly.
These best practices are intended to be a resource for employees. They build upon the Employee Code of Conduct, which was updated this year to address social media use, as well as other MCPS rules and regulations. They have been developed over multiple years, based on research into what other school districts have in place, feedback and insight from our partner Common Sense Media, and feedback from staff members and other stakeholders. They will be updated annually to address the evolving digital landscape.
They are not intended to address every single situation that may occur online. Contact the Department of Communications if you would like to discuss a specific social media platform, practice or strategy.
