The Board of Trustees is committed to establishing and maintaining effective communication between the school district and the community served. The Board will strive to create and maintain schools that reflect the finest current educational practices. The Board appreciates the importance of incorporating the wishes of the local community in the creation of educational programs which reflect the needs and desires of the community and society. Accordingly, the Board will strive to keep the community fully informed to the best of its abilities as developments occur within the school system.

As part of the Board's continuing commitment to advance education, it shall endeavor to establish and maintain effective communications with the community by:

1. Promoting school public relations at both school and district level.

2. Providing a variety of ways for people to become involved in their schools so they can express their interest in and concern for their schools and students.

3. Anticipating the information needed by the public and providing the information in timely, understandable and appropriate ways.

4. Facing controversial issues squarely and presenting the public with the information it needs to understand them.

The Superintendent or designee is encouraged to use all available means of communication to keep the goals, program, achievements and needs of the schools before the public.

The Superintendent or designee may delegate authority for this function to the central administration staff and to the school principals as he/she sees fit.
