When School Staff Go Viral – Balancing First Amendment Rights

December 05, 2017 - 7:34 AM PST

A member of your faculty or staff posts a seemingly innocuous online expression, and all of a sudden you have a PR nightmare on your hands when the community finds out about it. Balancing your school district’s efficacy against the First Amendment Rights of faculty and staff in the age of social media can be a daunting task. Should you ask your staff not to post images of them holding wine and beer or posing in what may seem like immoral outfits? These are just two of the many questions school administrators must answer on a daily basis.

In this hour long webinar, you will learn:

  1. How does Pickering v. Board of Education impact Freedom of Speech for employees in public education?
  2. When can a school district take adverse employment action against staff on the basis of speech that is posted online, and under what circumstances is that speech protected?
  3. How can public school administrators reach legally and ethically defensible decisions in widely divergent cases?
  4. How can school districts protect the efficacy of their school systems while still respecting the First Amendment rights of their employees?

Plus, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about their district’s policies on what faculty and staff can and cannot post on social media.
