Web Site Photo Release


Maine School Administrative District No. 31


From time to time, we take photos and digital images and shoot videos to use in our school newspaper and other publications and projects. These photos and videos may also be used on our web site. As part of this web site, we want to highlight student work, activities, and recognize achievements. These works may also be used as part of the Laptop Initiative.

M.S.A.D. #31 has developed the following content guidelines for our schools.

  • The full name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address of a student will not be provided on any school-generated sites.

  • Photographs of large groups of students may be posted without parental permission as long as individual students are not singled out or identified in any way (e.g. a school assembly, sporting event or music or drama festivals).

  • Parental permission must be obtained before photographs of individual children or small groups of children (e.g. class photos) are posted on the sites.

  • Students will be identified by first name only unless we have specific parent permission to use the student’s entire name such as when an award is presented. (Photos and rosters of school groups or teams may include full name and a uniform number since this information is regularly published in local newspapers as well.)

  • Administration is responsible for the implementation of this policy.
