RSU #74 WEBSITE AND DISTRICT SOCIAL MEDIA

 

The RSU #74 maintains an official website and social media platforms to provide general information about our school system as well as information about educational programs, co-curricular/extra-curricular activities and school events. The website and social media platforms are intended to support the educational mission of the schools; to enhance the curriculum and learning opportunities for students and employees; and to inform the larger community about our schools. The school unit's website and social media platforms do not create, nor are they intended to create a public or limited public forum.

 

The school unit's website and social media platforms also provide the School Board a medium to publicize its official position on issues related to the schools such as school building projects, proposed school budgets and public policies affecting the schools. The school unit's website and social media platforms are an outlet for the official message of RSU #74 and are not a forum for dissemination of other views. The content of the website and social media platforms shall remain in the exclusive control of RSU #74, its School Board and Superintendent of Schools, or designee.

 

The Board has adopted guidelines to ensure that the RSU #74's website and social media platforms are in compliance with applicable laws and meet the highest educational and quality standards. The Superintendent is responsible for implementing this policy, the accompanying guidelines and any additional administrative procedures that may be needed to govern the day-to-day management of the website and social media platforms. The Superintendent may delegate specific responsibilities as he/she deems appropriate.
