Guidance on Social Media Use
The NYCDOE is committed to ensuring that staff and students who use social media for professional and academic purposes do so in a safe and responsible manner. You should review the NYCDOE’s Social Media Guidelines and the Internet Acceptable Use and Safety Policy and share them with your staff. Please note that all staff should be judicious in their professional and personal use of social media, and be mindful that social-media posts may be viewed by individuals who are not the intended recipients. For questions, email Lisa Nielsen.
