Our communications department, Community Connections, serves as a liaison to our families and to the community. We develop and maintain effective communication channels both internally with our staff and students and externally with our families, media, local businesses, and community members.
With over 27,000 students who speak over 130 languages, we are always seeking new and innovative ways to communicate with a large and diverse community. We foster understanding and support for our schools by:
· Providing timely and accurate communications during crisis situations, inclement weather, natural disasters, or other emergencies.
· Sharing student achievements and accomplishments, school news and events, and District initiatives.
· Developing and maintaining over 600 community partnerships with local businesses and organizations.
· Creating ongoing opportunities for families and community members to share their ideas and feedback.
