Community Relations

Director of Community Relations

The goal of this department is to provide accurate, up-to-date and effective information to our parents and community members by working closely with the district administration and communications department.  We recognize that there are many ways to get information and strive to ensure that we provide enough trustworthy sources.  

This department also serves as a resource for prospective, new and existing families to the district.  We offer an easy way for users to get questions answered through the “Ask Us” link on the website directing them to appropriate staff, documents or other information.  We also provide school tours at each of our four buildings.

If you have a question, please ask it.  We are here to answer it.
