Public Information Program - 4120

Mukilteo School District
Community Relations - Series 4000
Public Information Program - 4120

The District will strive to maintain effective two-way communication channels with the public. Such channels will enable the Board and staff to interpret the schools' performance and needs to the community and provide a means for citizens to express their needs and expectations to the Board and staff.

The Superintendent will establish and maintain a communication process within the school system and between it and the community. Such a public information program will provide for a District annual report, news releases at appropriate times, news media coverage of District programs and events, and regular direct communication between individual schools and the community members they serve. The public information program will also assist staff in improving their skill and understanding in communicating with the public.

Community opinion may be solicited through a variety of strategies including, but not limited to, parent organizations, parent-teacher conferences, open houses and other such events or activities which may bring staff and citizens together. At times, Board meetings may be scheduled at neighborhood schools. Survey instruments and/or questionnaires may be developed in order to gain a broad perspective of community opinion. The District will ensure accessibility and representation of the people we serve, including making interpretation and translation services available upon request.
