District Communications

Our District Communications aims to keep the community well-informed about school issues and programs, notify families of timely matters, get feedback from community stakeholders on important issues, and share and celebrate the successes of our students, staff, and schools. 

As an extension of the Superintendent’s office, we take seriously our responsibility to conduct school business in an environment of transparency and openness. Several communications tools help raise awareness and nurture strong relationships with parents, staff, students, the community, and media.
