Many educators have faced serious consequences from things they’ve written on social media or through email. Our ethical standards as school psychologists say to never compromise our professional effectiveness, so where should we ethically draw the line regarding social media posts about politics or posts about students? Where should you, the school psychologist, ethically draw the line regarding online rants about co-workers or facebook pictures of you drinking at a bar? Where do you ethically draw the line regarding jokes over email or posting assessment scores online, which many school psychologists do on Facebook forums in order to consult the advice of other school psychologists? This engaging, practical presentation gives concrete answers based on reputable sources to difficult ethical dilemmas. It discusses ethical and legal implications when communicating work-related information electronically such as through email. It reviews relevant federal law related to electronic communication, using case law as examples. It also provides helpful recommendations and practical tips for communicating electronically. Presented by Tim McIvor, NCSP in October of 2017, and then substantially revised in June of 2018. It has been revised multiple times since then based on evaluation feedback and updates in technology.
