SSD Social Media Guidelines

Shelton School District (SSD) welcomes open dialog and community on our social media sites. Our Facebook page is a place where our students, families, communities, teachers, principals, staff, and supporters can come together around our school district. We simply ask that participants remain respectful.

Because SSD is a school district serving school-aged children, content posted on social media by the district and commenters must use language, style and tone that is generally acceptable for school-aged children and families. Posts and comments that do not illustrate civility, respect, and reasoned dialogue will be removed.

Additionally, the district reserves the right to remove comments and posts and ban users using obscene or disrespectful language, sexual content, and comments or posts that threaten or defame any person or organization, violate the legal ownership interest of another party, support or oppose political candidates or ballot propositions, promote illegal activity, promote commercial services or products, are not topically related to the particular posting, or contain contents that promote, foster, or perpetuate hate and/or discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, age, religion, gender, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, national origin, physical or mental disability, or sexual orientation.

All content related to district business on this social media site is a public record, subject to retention and disclosure. The district does not express approval or support for the views expressed by third-parties.

The District does not monitor messages or comments received via Facebook on a regular basis. Messages and comments received on Facebook do not constitute official legal notice to the District of any information contained therein. Any questions, complaints or public records requests should be directed to appropriate District personnel. Contact information for such notices and other helpful information about the Shelton School District can be found at the District’s website at If you would like a private response to a post on this site, please send an email to [email protected].
