PISD Key Communicators
The Key Communicator program is one valuable aspect of the school district’s ongoing, two-way
communications effort with parents and other citizens in the district. The communications department coordinates the programs with the assistance of parent volunteers, led by longtime Key Communicators chairperson Sharon Goldblatt.
About the Program
Key Communicators link parents and the community to information about the school district.
Key Communicators are parents who are nominated for one year of service by their school principal. They link parents and the community to information about the school district, while being kept informed through meetings, periodical mailings, online information, events and personal contact.
Each school selects three parents to serve as Key Communicators during each given school year. Key Communicators do the following:
- Attend three evening meetings at which time the superintendent and other key staff share information and interact with the group.
- Meet with their school principal to develop ways to facilitate communications.
- Provide another opportunity for volunteerism as a school representative.
- Attend a spring forum, open to the public in election years, at which school board candidates speak and respond to questions.
- Work on special projects (these vary from year to year but include legislative issues, special events, etc.).
- Attend various school district events, dedications, receptions, etc.
- Facilitate balanced and factual communications.
