Communication is critical in our public schools and it starts with the superintendent and reaches to every member of a school community. A successful and comprehensive communication program is the backbone to engagement in your local community. The systems you establish through an effective communication program within your community will also be the systems that you turn to during and after a crisis. Join us on November 14 at Washtenaw ISD to hear how Nixa Public Schools set up their program and how your communication program to is critical in the midst of a crisis.
