Byers Group Infrastructure (framework)

  • What we’re hoping to establish is a precedent that sets a fair, open, and transparent way for everyone to know the information STP endorses or disseminates:
  •  1. Aligns with the DSST Byers brand and community standards (A Welcoming Community…)
  •  2. Addresses a topic/area that’s deemed a community benefit
  •  3. Is non-partisan (neutral remind, and redirect all activities to be supportive and informative around providing solutions), NOT a place to complain (we’ll have a formal process for this (feedback/form)
  •  4. A formal process (online form, based on the final criteria) to submit a Group:

    • STP Leadership Internal process to review and make a recommendation
    • STP Leadership approval process (notification to Group Moderator)
    • Preparation and Launch of Group
  • Once Launched – Community of practice norms (around social networks):

    • Expectations (rules, structure (group moderator)
    • Monitoring and Warnings (by the group moderator)
    • Removal process (of content and member(s), people can only be removed from a Group, but not STP
    • Disclaimer: STP is an independent organization (governing body) that supports the school
  • Looking for parents to help translate pages

With no other questions or comments, the meeting concluded at 8:02 am
