In 2022, the Greater Victoria School Board of Education passed Policy 1305 – Social Media Use to outline best practices for Trustees, employees and students. In addition to the policy, social media guidelines were created to foster greater understanding and productive use of social media amongst those in the Greater Victoria School District (GVSD) learning community.
These guidelines serve to inform all members of the GVSD—including parents and guardians—on the appropriate use of social platforms, both personally and professionally. Individuals must be mindful of how they present themselves and interact with others online, just as they are mindful when conducting themselves in daily social interactions.
