The Community Affairs Department is committed to providing timely and convenient communication to parents, students, staff, and community members. Responsibilities of the department include managing the district’s social media and web presence. All media and public relation requests are processed through the office of Community Affairs.
During the course of the school year, we understand that situations may arise that require the parents or guardians of our students to contact staff members.
To ensure a prompt and comprehensive response, the following protocol has been established to provide guidance regarding whom parents or guardians should address their questions and/or concerns. It is our hope that by following this process, the school district will be able to best meet the needs of student, while addressing the concern or question from the parent/guardian.
The Director of Community Affairs handles all media requests, including interviews and site visits. While the district is committed to open, two-way communication, this must be balanced against the right to privacy of minors who attend our schools. All media inquiries should be directed to the Director of Community Affairs, exceptions include public meetings, routine athletic and/or extracurricular activity news coverage during games, and/or performances conducted outside the normal school day.
SD129 publishes an electronic newsletter every Friday. Community members without a student enrolled in the district can sign up to receive our weekly newsletter. Parents/guardians are automatically signed up if they have provided an email address to their school through Home Access Center.
