    Setting Up School Social Media Accounts

    Here are guidelines for setting up official school social media accounts. This applies to a school's official Google calendar, Google Photos albums, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube channels, etc. Note: several of these social media are blocked by PGCPS filters and will require use of data plans outside of the PGCPS network to update.

    • Adhere to PGCPS social media procedures: Administrative Procedure 4126
    • Adhere to image copyright regulations and publicity release form permissions for student image postings.
    • Use the school's official email address (i.e. school-name@pgcps.org) to sign up for a social media account. This is the same account usually used to receive faxes at the school. Check with your principal for access. 
    • Do not use personal cell phone numbers or personal email or PGCPS employee-specific emails to sign up for social media accounts. The use of these will risk a school "losing" access to their social media presence if an employee leaves the school.
