So­cial me­dia pol­icy

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - FROM THE COVER -

The School Board should adopt a fi­nal so­cial me­dia pol­icy on Sept. 28. The rules stem from grow­ing con­cern over in­ap­pro­pri­ate re­la­tion­ships be­tween stu­dents and staff.

The pol­icy dic­tates rules of elec­tronic com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween stu­dents and staff.

It also re­quires em­ploy­ees and vol­un­teers to re­port any sus­pected sex­ual mis­con­duct be­tween stu­dents and em­ploy­ees.

Yet the board and com­mu­nity mem­bers re­main con­cerned over the re­quired back­ground checks for un­su­per­vised or reg­u­lar vol­un­teers — a roughly $60 cost that vol­un­teers would have to cover.

Dis­trict of­fi­cials worry that will de­ter vol­un­teers from help­ing out in schools.

“That’s like gro­ceries al­most for the week, or gas for the car, or what­ever it is,” Board President Deanna Wright said of the cost.
