Maintaining Healthy Boundaries at Schoolhouse

In a global community like Schoolhouse, it's important to set healthy personal boundaries to maintain a safe, productive environment for everyone.

What are healthy personal boundaries?

Personal boundaries at Schoolhouse refer to the limits that we establish to protect themselves and maintain a sense of well-being. These boundaries define the acceptable and unacceptable behaviors or interactions from others. Setting and maintaining personal boundaries is crucial for fostering healthy and safe online friendships.

What are examples of personal boundaries?

Protecting your personal information. Disclosing personal information can compromise your safety and privacy, so we ask that you please refrain from sharing it anywhere on our site. You can learn more about these policies here.
Setting up discussion topic limits. While we understand the importance of open communication, it's recommended to avoid oversharing. A good rule of thumb is that if you wouldn’t discuss something in a classroom environment at school, it’s best to avoid discussing it on Schoolhouse.
Feeling empowered to avoid and report people who make you uncomfortable. If someone takes actions that single you out, make you feel uncomfortable, or simply give you a weird gut feeling, please stop interacting with them and report them to the safety team as soon as possible. Even if it turns out to be a false alarm, there’s no harm done in the safety team looking into what’s going on. You can learn more about how to handles situations like this here.

Why is it important to set up personal boundaries?

All online communities are best navigated when we establish and maintain clear personal boundaries. These boundaries serve as a foundation for safe, healthy and respectful interactions.
