The goal of Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools (GSACRD) is to share important information
with our public and engage in an open and respectful dialogue. To help us accomplish this
goal we ask that you abide by the following guidelines:

Be respectful. Personal attacks or comments that are deemed offensive to any member of
our community will not be tolerated. Inappropriate remarks and profanity will be removed.
Want to boost your product sales? Running for a political office? Publish a personal page
and leave ours for sharing news and insights about our Division, schools and activities.

Stay on topic. Our pages are dedicated to the education of students at GSACRD. Let’s keep the conversation related to our district, schools and activities.

Have a question for a specific employee? Contact them directly. Please don’t
expect responses to every question or comment posted on our pages.

Be aware of the mission. The mission of GSACRD is to enable students to learn, live fully
and serve others. Please ensure that your comments are appropriate for an educational
environment and fans of all ages.

Be factual. Blatantly inaccurate information will not be allowed. False information will
be removed and factual information will be posted.

Employees of GSACRD may have personal accounts. Don’t be surprised or offended if your
request to “friend” them is ignored. Division policy encourages staff to keep their personal
lives personal.

Our social media pages are made for you, and we want you to feel comfortable sharing your views about GSACRD schools or activities. However, abuse of the above guidelines can lead to removal of a specific posting or the blocking/removal of your account from our page.
