I’m aware of the BSA’s policy of always including a parent or another leader when texting a scout to maintain Youth Protection’s “no one-one-one contact” policy. I have a more nuanced question.
Our Patrol Leaders’ Council has created a group text thread to communicate to one another, and included me (the Scoutmaster) on the thread. In a group text situation, and I required to have them add another adult in the conversation? As far as I’m aware, this isn’t a one-on-one contact situation, as it’s a group of about 5-6 scouts and myself, and I’m not sure a text thread would be considered a “meeting” under two-deep leadership policy.
Any guidance here?
