Why did Chesapeake Public Schools create a Twitter account?
We plan to use this account to inform the school community of news and important information, to promote school activities and events, and to recognize student and staff achievements. In addition, we will use Twitter to help communicate emergency alerts. This account allows us to communicate information to a large audience very quickly.
I don’t have a Twitter account. Do I have to have one?
No. Twitter will be used as an additional communication tool by the Public Information Office. You can follow our posts by visiting our website. The Twitter feed is on the right hand side.
If I reply to one of the posts from @cpschoolsva, is someone monitoring the account?
Yes! The Public Information Office is managing the division account. We create the posts and monitor the replies. We do our best to answer any questions within 24-48 hours, but feel free to give us a call at 757-547-1033 anytime.
Will CPS create any additional social media accounts such as Instagram or Facebook?
The Public Information Office for Chesapeake Public Schools uses many tools to communicate with our schools and community, such as our website (cpschools.com), Parent Alert System, emails, and Twitter posts. As we continue to grow, we may create additional accounts on other social media platforms. If we do,
we will share that with you so you can follow us! We want everyone to be in the loop!
Will my child's picture appear on Twitter?
Identifiable images of students at school will only be used if appropriate permissions are on file with the school. That means if you do not want your child’s image shared on Twitter or any other media outlets, be sure to complete the Media Opt-Out form located in the Student Code of Conduct booklet and return it to your child’s school.
