Food 4 Thought Food Drive


Just as the Curriculum and Instruction Department is closest to the classroom, the Office of District Communications and Public Information is closest to the community which supports that classroom.  The Communications Department connects with all community stakeholders by:

  • Maintaining and building public confidence, reaching broad support, for educational programs,
  • Communicating effectively and building/maintaining relationships with a variety of internal and external stakeholders in an effective two-way process,
  • Managing the information flow to and from the commercial news and media,
  • Updating communications policies, practices and administrative processes, and
  • Harnessing the power of a variety of media to communicate.

Structure in the Communications Department emphasizes interpersonal communications, the most effective form of communicating whenever possible and feasible. Interpersonal communication helps build trust within the school district, creates opportunities for flow of information, and helps support a culture of dedication, collaboration, and learning.
