Join us for the next program in our Education Lunch & Learn series as we discuss social media issues and how school districts can shape their policies to promote a safe environment and mitigate liability risk.

Our panel will address some of the most pressing questions school administrators face, including:

  • Does the First Amendment protect negative comments on a government official’s social media site?
  • Under the First Amendment, what qualifies as a “public forum” on social media?
  • When can a district discipline students for online conduct?
  • How can districts respond to student misconduct on social media when multiple students are involved?
  • What provisions should districts include in their cyberbullying policies to account for conduct that occurs outside of school?
