Tempe Elementary School District’s Guidelines for Using Social Media

These guidelines are meant to be a dynamic set of ideas that will enhance everyone’s experience on our social media sites. New norms online will emerge, just as other ones will fall to the side.

Respect Others

Sexist, racist, libelous and other discriminatory comments or images will be removed immediately. Users are free to discuss topics and disagree with another, but please be respectful of others' opinions and don't resort to personal attacks even those made in jest. They will not be tolerated.

Keep it Clean

Do not post offensive, obscene or sexually explicit language or photos. Acronyms referring to this kind of language and such words or phrases in other languages will not be tolerated. Posts will be removed immediately without notice. We will also remove any posts that refer to illegal activity.

Carefully Consider What You Post

For your own safety and security, please refrain from posting personal or family contact information (home phone numbers, mailing or home addresses, personal e-mail addresses, etc.) as well as other’s information. You may also want to be careful with information about your social life, family life, vacation plans, etc.

It is important to occasionally review what information is public, as the default settings are sometimes changed. The general public can see much of what is posted on social networking sites. Increasingly, there are for-profit websites that collect personal information from several web sources. Remember, even if you delete content from your social media profiles, it may still remain on the web and be accessible to others.

In general, when posting or sharing information or having discussions, ask yourself whether the information should be publicly available. If it shouldn’t, or if you are approaching a line beyond which the information should be protected, stop and move to a more secure forum.

Don't Spam

We encourage you to use the space as a platform to share your experiences at our schools and achievements from our staff, teachers, and students. However, overtly commercial advertisements, solicitations and promotions are not allowed and will be removed promptly. Exceptions are made for school events and community events of interest to the District.

Stay on Topic

We encourage open discussion among community members. However, postings that are deemed irrelevant to the Tempe Elementary School District community may be removed at the District’s sole discretion.

Report Violations

All content and posts are bound by the:


Content may be removed at any time — or users blocked — without prior notice for any reason deemed to be in the best interests of the Tempe Elementary School District community.
