Walton County School District

Social Media

Purpose

Walton County School District has a need to augment traditional communication methods with the use of social media channels. This need primarily stems from public demand and the rapid growth of social media used by other local, state and federal governmental entities as an indication that social media can be used effectively to enhance constituent communications. The use of social media presents opportunities to individual schools and departments, as well as the District as a whole. In general, the District supports the use of social media technology to enhance communication, collaboration and information exchange to meet the mission and goals of the School District.

The process for requesting a social media account through the Walton County School District is as follows:
