WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Wichita school board has approved a policy prohibiting employees from using personal social media accounts during work hours or on district computers.

The board voted unanimously to approve the policy Monday.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/18Vqgfv ) officials presented new guidelines for using social media that were developed by district officials over the past several years. The guidelines say the district doesn't take a position on employees' use of social media on personal time, but that social media for personal use during district time or on district equipment is prohibited.

Employees who violate the policy can be subject to discipline including termination.

The guidelines also say that district employees "are strongly advised to avoid friending students or the parents of students" on their personal social media accounts.
