Open communication with the district’s students, parents, patrons and the public in general is essential for the school district to operate effectively. The district will make a systematic effort to communicate with the public using newsletters, student handbooks, local media and the district’s website.

Board policies and related documents, including current versions of district handbooks, will be posted on the district’s website. School building and district report cards may be posted on the district website and will be distributed to the public as determined by the superintendent or designee. Other public information will be available in the district’s buildings or administrative offices for viewing by the public during the office’s normal business hours, as required by law and in accordance with policy BDDL.

The district will utilize the local radio, newspapers and other media to publicize the district’s legal obligations as required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and by other applicable law. Notice of district meetings will be made to representatives of the news media, if requested.

The superintendent or designee may adopt administrative procedures to further the goals of this policy.
