Does APS' new social media policy apply to school board members?

APS new social media police requires students to use social media in a “responsible, ethical and polite manner.”

How exactly are students supposed to know what ethical means now that ethics isn't part of the curriculum?  If they have been exposed to ethics at all, it was likely on a list of words to spell.

I love that the Journal, link, tracked down APS School Board Member Kathy Korte for a quote.

posted on social media by Kathy Korte in an effort to
slander and libel photo-Journalist Mark Bralley after
attacking him before a school board meeting.

It violates APS social media policy.

Nor is it Korte's first rodeo, link.

APS Executive Director of Communications Monica Armenta informs us;
consequences for violating the policy will vary; 
they will be handled on a case by case basis. 
In other words; same old, same old.

Never mind the consequences of disparate enforcement of rules.
