University Of Georgia First Amendment Clinic Asks Oconee County Schools To Alter Its Social Media Use Policy

***Waiting On Response From School Attorney***

The staff of the First Amendment Clinic at the University of Georgia School of Law has asked Oconee County Schools to remove or modify a restriction contained in its Social Media Terms of Use put into place before the beginning of the current school year.

Those Terms of Use prohibit persons from commenting on the social media sites maintained by Oconee County Schools if the comment, in the view of the school staff, "relates specifically to an employee, parent or student grievance or complaint."
