Use of Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us email, participating in a survey, completing an on-line form or posting content to our social media pages. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. When a user submits personally identifiable information, it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection.
Where consent for the use and disclosure of personal information is required, the school will seek consent from the appropriate person. In the case of a student's personal information, the school will seek the consent from the student and/or parent depending on the circumstances and the student's mental ability and maturity to understand the consequences of the proposed use and disclosure.

CPS Social Media Moderation Guidelines
In order to create a positive and engaging environment for users among CPS’ social media accounts and pages, we ask all users to treat each other with respect. Users may disagree with an idea; however, we request they be respectful of others at all times. Insults, threats or harassment of other users, organizations or employees are prohibited. CPS will not tolerate and reserves its right to delete or hide to the full extent that each respective social media platform allows any post or comment that violates district policies, which may include images and/or statements that are defamatory, disgraceful, vulgar, inappropriate or harassment in nature to CPS or others; encourage or suggest illegal activity; and unintelligible or irrelevant posts (off topic). In addition, if continued harassment is evident on multiple CPS posts, accounts or pages, the user may be banned or blocked from future engagement. Any comment(s) posted which we deem to be criminal in nature, or instigates or implies violence toward oneself or another will be reported to the proper authorities. Also, tagging our district and/or schools or using the #IamCPS hashtag or other district commonly used hashtags gives CPS consent to repost content on its social media accounts and pages. If you have questions regarding our guidelines, please reach out to the CPS Office of Marketing and Communication via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (513) 363-0020
