Seems like social media in schools is issue number one for many districts around the country. Washington County (MD) school district recently announced  that administrators will begin to monitor student online posts this fall, using a system from Social Sentinel  that uses a "geofencing" protocol to only track posts that are made while the student is on school property. Pulaski County Special Schools in Arkansas has an updated social media policy  that includes faculty use. Colbert County High School is taking a positive approach to the online phenomenon by instituting a new marketing campaign called "Tribe Pride.” Officials will use it to engage students, teachers, and the community through social media. I will be collecting more of the stories over the coming days to prepare a feature for a future issue. What ways are your schools using social media? Email me at khogan@nbmedia.com.
