Policy H503:  Website and Web Pages

The Hancock School Department maintains an official website to provide general information about our school system, as well as information about educational programs, extracurricular activities, school events, and student and staff achievements.  This website is intended to support the educational mission of the schools, to enhance the curriculum and learning opportunities for students and staff, and to provide valuable information to the larger community about our schools.  The website does not create, nor is it intended to create, a public or limited public forum.

The Hancock School Committee recognizes that the Hancock Grammar School must establish reasonable controls to protect the privacy of students and staff, to ensure that the website is in compliance with applicable laws, and to ensure that it meets the highest educational and quality standards.  The Superintendent shall be responsible for overseeing the implementation of this policy and the accompanying guidelines, and for advising the School Committee of the need for any future amendments or revisions to the policy or guidelines.  The Superintendent may develop additional administrative procedures or rules governing the day-to-day management and operations of the School Department’s website, consistent with School Committee policy and guidelines.  The Superintendent may delegate specific responsibilities as s/he deems appropriate.
