The purpose of social media is to:

  • Provide accurate, relevant and up-to-date information

Content

The PTA executive board shall approve the site and assign the responsibility for monitoring content. Content on all social media outlets used by the PTA shall:

Be civil, cordial and relevant

Be inclusive for all groups

  • Avoid making sites exclusive vehicles for board information behind passwords.
  • ­Avoid “PTA-speak” by not using words or acronyms the average parent would not understand.

Not include documents intended for members only, such as bylaws, minutes and financials, unless access is protected and available only to members of that PTA
Not endorse, promote or solicit on behalf of a business, product or service
Not include comments and posts used as advertising space (explicit or implied) Not endorse a candidate or political party
Be verified for access

  • Obtain permission from individuals prior to posting photographs and videos.
  • Check with the school district’s communications administrator for guidelines on the photo release policy, or obtain a signed photo release thorough the PTA before publishing any photo or video.

Notice

Texas PTA and its constituents associations are encouraged to post the following information on their social media site so visitors are aware of the expectations.

Solicitation, or anything that resembles solicitation, shall not be posted on this site. If complaints are received about content or if the PTA deems content to be advertising, that content will be removed regardless of whether the content is relevant to our members.
