A new communication tool helps keep parents in the loop, and school officials are working to implement it so that parents and other have a new avenue for offering feedback.
“Information is invaluable,” said Superintendent Peter Sanchioni.
The new tool is called Let’s Talk, and will allow comments on a variety of topics, such as school technology, curriculum, and the budget. Information flows two ways, so administrators can provide important information and links to relevant documents using the tool.
“This is another place to try to get people’s attention,” Assistant Superintendent Anna Nolin said. The tool is of value for parents, and the public. Comments can be submitted with a name, or anonymously. The system has minimal impact on the budget, but allows for interaction with the public and an enhanced social media accessibility.
In addition to the new tool, the district is enhancing newsletters and looking for additional ways to improve communication.
