Bettering communications in the Coxsackie-Athens School District

Dec 04, 2010 9:53 am
COXSACKIE — Melanie Lekocevic reports in the Daily Mail today that the Coxsackie-Athens Central School District is mulling a set of recommendations and an action plan aimed at improving communications in the district proposed at a recent school board meeting. The district’s task force charged with looking into communication failures within the district was comprised of members from various facets of the community – parents, district staff members, business leaders and local residents. The idea was to develop a plan that would increase the district’s ability to communicate with both the school community and the public at large. Among recommendations now on the table are the creation of a permanent communications committee and annual plans, to be made-up-to-date with current technological advances, daily updates to staff in each school building and the fostering of a more “welcoming atmosphere” between staff and the board of education,the establishment of an events calendar for the district’s website, as well as an updated and redesigned website, perhaps with a new logo, and use of popular technologies such as Twitter and Facebook with an opt-in email alert system to keep parents and students informed. The board will also look into making its meetings more conducive to public input, with a possible web section for comments, as well as ways of better publicizing school events in the local media.
