• Social Media Account Guidelines and Registration

    Fort Smith School District staff members are allowed to set up and manage social media accounts that represent schools, departments, programs, athletic teams and clubs. The following types of social media accounts are allowed:

    • Twitter
    • Instagram
    • YouTube
    • Vimeo
    • Facebook Group
    • Facebook Page

    While many staff members have social media accounts that represent themselves or their classrooms but not their school or program, certain criteria require registration with the Communications Office:

    • The account is connected to your username@fortsmithschools.org email
    • The primary purpose of the account is to promote your classroom, school or district.

    All accounts must be approved by the Communications Department and all posts on these accounts are public records. Staff must agree to the Account Manager Agreement. 

    Once approved, account owners will be responsible for creating the account except for Facebook Pages. After the account is created, account owners must notify the Communications Department. If you would like to create a Facebook Page for your school, the Communications Department will set it up and give you management access after you complete the registration process.

    If you're unsure whether your account meets these criteria, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to assist you. Contact Communications if you have questions or would like to discuss this further.
