Please adhere to the following guidance:

D302 social media pages include Facebook, X, Instagram, and other platforms that spotlight achievements, events, activities, and additional information. The pages provide information to build connections with families and the community.

Some examples include posts or comments that threaten, harass, mislead, discriminate, or promote pornography, violence, or drugs. Advertisements for politics, religion, and businesses are not allowed.

Failing to follow these guidelines will result in the deletion of the post and potential blocking from all of the District's social media accounts. Please contact the Director of Communications with questions or concerns about the user experience.
