NASHUA – Opportunities to engage students through social networking, both inside and outside the classroom, should be encouraged as long as parents are made aware.
That’s the message of the School District’s proposed social media policy, which has not yet been passed but has received support in policy committee meetings this month.
School officials called the policy progressive and innovative, compared with similar policies in other districts.
“Electronic communications is just another form of communications today,” said Board of Education member David Murotake, who also sits on the policy committee. “So, therefore, any additional impediment to electronic communication should be minimal.”
The policy committee plans to review feedback from local principals and could approve the social media policy at its next meeting, Tuesday, March 6.
It would then be passed onto the Board of Education for final approval.
