Social Media Terms of Use

Chesapeake Public Schools (CPS) recognizes there may be times when citizens disagree with school system policies, procedures, and actions. Dissenting opinions thoughtfully and respectfully expressed are welcomed. Lively public discourse can be enlightening. That being said, wholesale efforts to dominate this page or rhetoric that is insultingly written will be deleted. Any content deemed to be slanderous, hateful, or inappropriate for public discussion will be removed immediately, and CPS reserves the right to block users who repeatedly violate these terms of use. 

Examples of content that will be removed include:  

  • Personal attacks or threats against any person or group  
  • Solicitations or advertisements of any kind  
  • Nudity or pornography  
  • Profanity or vulgar language  
  • References to or supporting use of tobacco and tobacco products  
  • References to or supporting use of firearms or other weapons  
  • References to or supporting use of alcohol  
  • Posts by persons who are impersonating city officials or using false identities  
  • Animal cruelty  
  • Information affiliated with or promoting political campaigns  
  • Posting someone else’s personal information (i.e., home address or phone number) without their written consent  
  • References to specific, ongoing personnel cases 

This list can be added to at any time. For more information about posting protocol, contact the Department of Communications at 757-547-1033.
