Connect with Shaker Schools

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.

Staying connected with the Shaker Heights Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO) 
The Shaker PTO has a new website and family directory this year.  Please visit shakerpto.org to see PTO news. There are separate pages for every school building. Shaker PTO has also replaced the AtoZ Directory with a family directory on the website. To be in the family directory, please register an account with Membership Toolkit. Once you verify your family information and select your preferences for publishing in the directory, you will get a confirmation email and be able to see the directory. There are no fees to join the Shaker PTO. Every parent/caregiver and teacher of a Shaker student is automatically a member. We ask that you register so you will get PTO News from your school PTOs and you will have access to the family directory.
