The Lodi Unified School District board will consider three options for social networking guidelines at Tuesday’s board meeting.
The guidelines are designed to combat student bullying of other students, teachers, administrators and school advisers through such forms of social media as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.
The school board initially adopted a policy in March, but it became controversial after school started on July 26 and students became aware of the policy. An attorney later threatened to sue the school district, alleging that it violated students’ First Amendment rights.
In other action on Tuesday, the board will hear reports on the Academic Performance Index exam, a consultant’s review of the district’s special education pgoram and a year-end report of READ 180 and System 44 programs for students who have trouble reading.
Tusday’s board meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the James Areida Education Support Center, 1305 E. Vine St., Lodi.
