Social Media Commenting Guidelines

Batavia Public School District 101’s Social Media Commenting Guidelines can also be found on the About section of our Facebook page.

These guidelines also apply to all BPS101 social media channels, including Twitter and Instagram. The guidelines are as follows:

BPS101’s social media pages, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, highlight District and school achievements, events, and activities, and other information. They are intended to provide information to build relationships with BPS101 families and the community.

Therefore, BPS101 expects comments posted on the District’s social media pages to be relevant, respectful, factual, and constructive. Any personal attacks or insults that name or allude to a specific person or a specific group of people will be deleted, as will posts that violate the privacy of others or Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. Examples include, but are not limited to, posts or comments that insult, intimidate, or harass; content that is hateful, threatening, pornographic, or contains violence or depictions of drugs; comments or posts that single out or point to a particular group of people or any post that is unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory. Business and political advertisements will be taken down as well.

Individuals who do not follow these guidelines will have their posts removed and could be blocked. If you have concerns or questions about a specific situation, we ask that you please call your school and voice your opinion. If you have any further questions about the social media experience, please email the District’s communications manager.
