Question: PTO Social Media Policy

Does anyone have a PTO social media policy they could share with me? I.E. What are the rules regarding posting etc. on a PTO Facebook page?

Great question! You might want to start by talking to your group about how you want to use social media before you jump in. That way, you will have a clear idea of what you want to do. You might want to check out this social media discussion on our message boards. One post includes a list of points to include in a social media "code of conduct.'' That could give you some good ideas. Good luck!

The only thing we have decided is to NOT post pictures of events or mention the names of students or families, I would say the same rules that would apply for traditional media (Newspapers, radio). We DO have a private Executive Board facebook group that is only available to ex board members....that way we can have private conversations about what's going on.
