Rapid City Schools Revamping Technology Policy

February 20, 2012, 9:41 AM

Rapid City Schools Revamping Technology Policy
RAPID CITY, SD - Officials at Rapid City Area Schools are reconsidering a change to the technology policy that would have made it tougher for district staff to contact students through social media, email and text messages.

The policy would prohibit staff from "friending" students on social networking sites like Facebook unless they were a relative. It also would have required teachers and coaches who communicate via text or email to send only group messages or copy their supervisor when a single message is necessary.

But several staff members who work in nontraditional settings are worried that the policy would hinder their ability to do their jobs.

Superintendent Tim Mitchell says school administrators are working to find a middle ground.
