The Office of Communications and Public AffairsThe Office of Communications and Public Affairs serves as the primary ource of communications for the District. Our goal is effective two-way communication, reflecting our core values of equity, excellence, and community, by developing and maintaining communication channels both internally with our staff and students and externally with our families, community members, local businesses, and media.
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 support our schools in their communication efforts 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 opportunities for families and community members to share their ideas and feedback.
For the Record was used as a communication tool for a short period of time last spring to answer questions from our community. As we move forward into the 2018-2019 school year, we will use other tools to engage in meaningful, two-way communication. The Q&A that were posted on this site are available here.
