Social Media Account Registration Form
Highline staff members are allowed to set up and manage social media accounts that represent schools, departments, programs, athletic teams and clubs.
The following types of social media accounts are allowed for departments, programs, classrooms, athletic teams and clubs: Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook Group.
In addition to the list above, schools may also have a Facebook Page.
These accounts must be approved by the Communications Department and all posts on these accounts are public records. Staff must agree to the account owner requirements outlined in the registration form.
Before seeking approval from the Communication Department, please discuss your plans for the social media account with your school principal or department administrator. Their approval is required as part of the approval process.
After getting approval from your school principal or department administrator please complete this online form. The form must be completed for each social media account you would like to create.
The Communications Department will notify your school principal or department administrator after receiving the registration form to confirm their approval.
Once approved, account owners will be responsible for creating the account except for Facebook Pages. After the account is created, account owners must notify the Communications Department who will connect it with ArchiveSocial, the district tool that archives social media content per state law. If you would like to create a Facebook Page for your school, the Communications Department will set it up and give you management access after you complete the registration process.
If you are a teacher interested in creating a YouTube channel for your classroom and will be using your firstname.lastname@example.org email address to set up the account, you do not need to register the account with the Communications Department. Only YouTube channels representing schools, departments, programs or clubs need to be registered.
Many staff members have Twitter accounts that do not represent their school or program, but do represent them or their classrooms. If your account meets at least one of the following criteria, it must be registered with the communications office:
- The account is connected to your email@example.com OR firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
- The account’s primary purpose is to promote your classroom, school, or district.
If you are not sure or have questions about the registration process, contact the Communications Department at 206-631-3002.
