The goal of the Communications Office is to assist in interpreting public attitudes, identify and help shape policies and procedures in the public interest, and carry on involvement and information activities which earn public understanding and support. The Manager of Communications manages and coordinates these communications efforts and serves as the school system's chief spokesperson. The office aims to support the district's mission, vision and goals by building strong relationships with stakeholders, aligning messages for key initiatives and programs, and engaging the community in two-way communication targeted to their needs.
