Portage Schools Discuss Facebook Policy

Share this post

In Portage, school officials are discussing whether or not teachers should be allowed to "friend" students on Facebook. The topic came up after a member of the Portage Township School Board recently proposed changing school policy to allow teachers to set up classroom Facebook pages, which differs from a personal page in that readers would "like" the page instead of sending in "friend" requests. The Times reports the discussion prompted the superintendent to say the district should take a "strong position" against teachers friending students on their personal Facebook pages.
