Community Guidelines

Georgia Pathway to Language and Literacy (GA Pathway) encourages community dialogue and welcomes you to participate in our message board and comment section.

Community Guidelines

Please keep these guidelines in mind as you participate in our online message board.

1. Protect Your Students’ Confidentiality

Do not post pictures of your students. You can post pictures of activities done in the classroom, but you may not include children’s faces or any identifying information in the picture. GA Pathway suggests that you take pictures of your activities without any children present. Do not post any students’ identifying information directly or indirectly through pictures, comments, or websites. Pictures or comments that include identifying information of children will be removed.

2. Be Respectful

Personal attacks, hateful, racially or ethnically derogatory comments, and harassment against other participants in the community will not be tolerated. You can certainly disagree with another, but be respectful and keep your comments relevant to the topic of conversation.

3. Avoid Nasty Language

Foul, obscene or sexually explicit language or other content that a reasonable person would find objectionable is not permitted.

4. Don't Spam

Advertisements, solicitations or promotions will not be allowed.

5. Use Your Own Words

The distribution of intellectual property not belonging to you is not permitted. If you are sharing information from another website, please include the URL (web address) and make sure use of sharing is permitted.

6. Make Yourself at Home

Remember, this is your community. Don't be shy to chime in and interact with your fellow GA Pathway professionals. Feel free to express yourself, ask questions and mix it up.

This includes libel or unsubstantiated accusations against another.
