Online Commenting Policy

Overv​iew
At Cardigan Mountain School, we teach respect for all individuals and embrace an appreciation for diverse perspectives. Consistent with our physical campus, we are committed to creating an online environment that supports open conversation and intellectual debate.

We strive for a community in which the civil and respectful expression of personal opinions and viewpoints is encouraged. Toward that end, we have created the Cardigan Mountain School Online Commenting Policy. This policy applies to all official School websites, social media network (such as Facebook, YouTube, etc.), blog, or any online presence with the ability to comment and is in official use by the School.
