(from Venable) Increasingly, employees, students, alumni, and parents at independent schools have taken to social media to air their grievances, express political views, and discuss their opinions regarding school closings, face masks, COVID-19 vaccines, and other hot-button issues. Schools should take a fresh look at their social media policies and consider whether they address the latest challenges and issues that may arise. Areas to consider include:
Legal challenges to social media activity and limits to first amendment rights
Policy updates to confidential information, anonymous accounts and "temporary" posts, communications on COVID-19 and political opinions
