The Communications Department helps realize the District’s vision of being the first-choice school district for all students, both locally and around the globe.
To that end, our team produces all mass communication needs, including news items, emergency text messaging, robocalls, website content, the District’s monthly newsletter, social media posts, sustained social media messaging and campaigns, and direct mail pieces. We also engage parents, students and the broader community—including faith-based leaders and elected officials—with the District’s internal stakeholders. Within the District, the team provides media relations counseling, communications strategies, executive writing, graphics services, and branding support.
