Update on the recent violation of Terms & Services on Konstella
Tue, Dec 8 6:57pm

Dear Meyerholz Community,

 

The Meyerholz Elementary PTA Board would like to update the community on the recent violation of Terms and Services on Konstella by a few registered users of the Meyerholz Konstella community. Konstella is an opt-in, social communication platform licensed to Meyerholz Elementary PTA on a yearly consideration and it is used by PTA to promote program coordination, communication and information.  Konstella is a benefit provided to the Meyerholz community to enable closed parent to parent communication within the Konstella platform. Meyerholz Elementary PTA Board and Committee Leads work closely with the school and the school’s communication guidelines to post and disseminate information on Konstella for your convenience.  While encouraged, participation in Konstella is not a requirement and PTA strives to, whenever possible, communicate through all available channels such as weekly Principal announcements, Thursday folders, PTA website, and morning announcements (Student Council videos).  

 

After the mass spamming of parents on November 18, we partnered with Konstella to investigate the issue. Based on the results of the investigation and evidence given to us by the parent community, we have removed the associated parties involved in the incidence from Konstella per Konstella’s Terms of Services user agreement.  Going forward, to protect Meyerholz Konstella users, we have worked with Konstella and the school to implement the following: 

  1. All Meyerholz account contact information is now on a default hide setting on Konstella. Parents can log into their Konstella account to change their privacy settings at any time.
  2. Any users violating the Terms of Services of Konstella will be removed from Konstella.  This includes violating the Privacy Policy and engaging in unfriendly behavior via the website.

 

Any further violations of the Terms of Services of Konstella will result in Konstella terminating the contract with Meyerholz Elementary PTA. 

 

There have been no changes to official school communication.  Meyerholz Administrators and Teachers will continue to use their own CUSD approved communication platform in their communication with all parents.  

 

Your Meyerholz Elementary PTA Board is 100% volunteer run so we thank you all for your support and understanding in this matter.
