Educator Class Content Policy
My Home School Family is a great place for educators and students to come together to enhance learning. We want to create a virtual place for a wide range of educational content, and appeal to as many students as possible.
Please keep class content clean, fun and engaging.
It is important to remember that Virtual Classrooms are indeed still classrooms and certain behaviors are expected when participating with peers and educators.
All My Home School Family classes should be age appropriate and without objectionable content.
When creating a class, if it is specifically taught with a Christian perspective, we recommend the teacher to select that option in the Class Creation portion of the website so that families are fully aware of the content their child will receive.
As stated above, classes should be age-appropriate. If there is questionable content within a text or curriculum, that information should be stated within the class description. For example, if teaching a science class that discusses the reproduction system, it would need to be disclosed in the class discussion whether that information would be taught, or skipped.
My Home School Family will not allow any content that is discriminatory, nor promotes violence or hate.
We welcome all educators, students and families and do not discriminate against nationality, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, political affiliation or religion.
Teachers or families, who do not abide by these rules, will be removed from My Home School Family.
The teaching of medical classes will not be allowed on My Home School Family:
Examples include, but are not limited to, CPR, First Aid, One on one counseling services, psychiatric or any form of special educational evaluations cannot be done on My Home School Family for the safety and well being of the students.
1. A science class, could discuss the different types of first aid, however, a teacher should not utilize My Home School Family to actually teach a student how to perform first aid.
2. A science class could teach healthy habits in regards to lifestyles, however, and educator should never devise a personal diet plan for a student.
If you have questions about specific class content and if it meets our guidelines, please contact us and we would be happy to give guidance!
If any student behaves in a manner that is hateful, discriminatory, disrespectful to peers or the teacher, uses profanity or disregards any of the guidelines stated within the My Home School Family policy, a teacher has the right to disconnect the student from the live class without refund. If that happens, the teacher must communicate with MHSF with the issue that happened within a 24 hour period so that we are aware of the incident.
