Four ways to connect and interact with FCS!To reach individuals through social networking Forsyth County Schools created a public page on Facebook in 2009. Facebook is free to users once an account is created. To receive FCS updates on your wall you must "like" the district's page. Please note that Facebook pages may contain commercial advertising that is not endorsed by FCS.FCS was one of the first school districts in the nation to reach stakeholders by tweeting. Twitter users who choose to follow the district will receive updates or tweets on their Twitter home page. Twitter is free to use over the web, but using text messaging may incur phone services provider fees.3. Instagram (Search for ForsythCoSchoolsGA)Check out our #fcstakeovers!4. Linked InNOTE: Fake social media accounts with school and/or the district names and logos violate copyright laws but unfortunately are common. FCS' official accounts have been in existence for many years and therefore have a long list of tweets and followers, while fake accounts have significantly less tweets and followers. When checking social media for information, such as school closings or delays, please use two sources, such as the district website.
The use of the Forsyth County Schools or FCS name or logo, and school name or logo for social media sites/usage must be cleared through the Public Information and Communications Department. District departments/offices must use the district social sites in lieu of creating their own sites.
