If you are interested in using social networking in your classroom inside the District network, you will need to download the two documents below.

The Teacher Permission Form is how a teacher requests permission to use a particular social networking site. This must be signed by the teacher and their principal. This form has a second page that includes some best practices that teachers must agree to abide by. These are sent in to Technology Services where they will be reviewed and approved or denied. Sites will be reviewed for educational appropriateness and their ability to provide a safe environment.

If a site is approved for use, the Parent Permission Form must be sent home with all students that wish to participate. You must have a signed permission form for all students participating in your social network.

"Social networking" sites include any site that enables students to create content on the web. (Many of the Digital Dozen sites fall under this category.)
