PRENTICE - The Prentice School Board approved a new policy for the district tonight.
The goal of the policy is to keep the district's social media accounts focused on celebrating its successes, and to teach students appropriate social media behavior.
"Also letting people know if they have concerns, basically we would like them to call, email, reach out to the district administrator or myself and not post those on social media," said Prentice Middle and High School Principal Melissa Pilgrim.
Pilgrim says discussions on implementing a social media commenting policy started last summer.
The district has a Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter account. The Facebook account currently has about 900 followers, which Pilgrim says is huge considering the size of their district.
Board members unanimously passed the new social media commenting policy.
