State and Federal Laws from time to time mandate information be posted on a school district's website. The requirements vary widely as well as the locations where these items might logically appear. With this page, Irving ISD hopes to provide our community with a quick resource for locating such information.
Social Media Rules of Engagement
Irving ISD welcomes public participation and engagement on all district, school and program social media accounts. However, comments will be monitored for civility and appropriateness. The following outlines the district’s Rules of Engagement for participation on district social media sites.
Irving ISD reserves the right to delete or remove a posting that violates any of these rules:
- Comments must stay on topic and be related to school district posts.
- Comments must be appropriate for an educational environment of all ages.
- No false, hostile or vulgar content.
- No offensive language. This includes remarks that are racist, homophobic, sexist or sexually explicit or that targets ethnic, religious or other legally protected groups.
- No specific allegations, personal attacks or accusations about a student, parent, employee, trustee or community member. The district social media sites are not intended for sharing personal issues and concerns.

In the event that a comment or post violates the Rules of Engagement, the comment will be removed from the site and a warning will be sent to the user. If there is another violation, said individual will be blocked from the site.
In accordance with Education Code §37.105, a school administrator, school resource officer (SRO), or district police officer shall have the authority to refuse entry or eject a person from district property if the person refuses to leave peaceably on request and;
The person poses a substantial risk of harm to any person; or
The person behaves in a manner that is inappropriate for a school setting, and the person persists in the behavior after being given a verbal warning that the behavior is inappropriate and may result in refusal of entry or ejection.
Appeals regarding refusal of entry or ejection from a district property may be filed in accordance with FNG(LOCAL) or GF(LOCAL), as appropriate. Texas Administrative Code §103.1207 requires individuals appealing under this section be allowed to address the Board of Trustees in person within 90 days of the appeal first being filed unless the appeal is earlier granted by District administration. Board policy GKA will be revised in accordance with Board procedures to effectuate compliance with this provision.
