Social Media Use

 
Prior to activating an official district-sponsored social media presence, employees of Murrieta Valley Unified School District who wish to create and maintain a district-sponsored presence on any social media site must obtain authorization from their school principal or department supervisor.  Becoming an authorized user enables you to override blocking on one computer based on your log in information (not to be used to override multiple computers).  Be sure to fill out the form completely, including the purpose for the social media use and the specific platforms (e.g. YouTube/Facebook) you would like to access. 
 
*NOTE: When completing the authorization form, be aware that there are two possible categories that may be available to you after submission of the form and completion of the Social Media Training.  One category is "social media," such as Facebook and Twitter.  The other category is for YouTube.  If you only select one category, only this category will be available.  In other words, if you only indicate "Facebook" on your authorization form, social media sites will be available but not YouTube.  If you only indicate "YouTube," then Facebook and other social media sites will not be accessible.

After the form has been completed and signed by the principal, 
send the form to Erica Franklin at the District Support Center. Once the form has been submitted, employee must register for and attend the Social Media Use Training before social media platforms can be activated
 
All employees who have an official district-sponsored social media presence are expected to adhere to Board Policy 1114  and Administrative Regulation 1114 on Social Media Use.  Personal social media use is not to be used to conduct official district or school business.
 

Social Media Use Training

Once authorization has been received, the employee is required to complete the district’s Social Media Use Training.  This training must be completed face-to-face and is NOT available online.  After the employee has completed the Social Media Use Training AND submitted a signed authorization form, the Technology Department staff will provide the employee with access to social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Skype.
 
The next Social Media Training will take place on Monday, September 22nd at 3:00-4:00 in the Tovashal Elementary computer lab.  If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by emailing Erica Franklin.  
 
IMPORTANT: Be sure to bring your completed and signed Authorization Form (see above) to this event to expedite your access.  You must BOTH attend the training AND submit a completed authorization form signed by you and your principal before access will be granted.
