Canyons Superintendent David S. Doty is quoted in two articles published in the American School Board Journal
about his use of social media as an educational and community outreach tool.
The article, "Network Connections," written by Naomi Dillon and published in the Journal's December 2010 edition, tells how the nation's school chiefs are examining online communication policies with the rise of social media sites. "Rules of Engagement," also by Ms. Dillon and published in the January 2011 edition, explores community engagement efforts by the nation's superintendents, and Dr. Doty's use of social media sites including Twitter and Facebook.
"The days of leading a district from an office and only responding to people that call you are over," Dr. Doty states in the article. "These are public, high-profile positions and you might as well engage these (social media) tools to engage the community in a positive way."
