CHAMPAIGN -- The Unit 4 School District has rules for Twitter, text and Facebook. Leaders created an official social media policy. They wanted to provide guidelines for staff since social media now plays such an important role in keeping parents and students connected.

One rule is that staff members must use an account associated with the school when contacting students about school-related matters. Leaders looked at dozens of policies form other schools to piece together one that fits the district.
