SCS supports its employees’ use of social media and content sharing sites. This approach is consistent with the use of the CloudShare platform that has been rolled out in Sydney Catholic schools.
Online behaviour should at all times demonstrate a respect for the dignity of each person.
Staff must, at all times, behave in an ethical manner when using social media.
Engagement in social media should be for the purposes of collaboration, communication and engagement within an educational/learning context, as well as community engagement in a marketing context.
Staff should always remain aware of their professional responsibilities, even when using their personal social media accounts.
Staff personal social media use must be congruent with the professional standards expected of an employee of SCS (see Code of Professional Conduct).
Staff posting or responding to a team social media account are doing so as a representative of SCS.
