Last year, the Board of Education created a Communications Sub-Committee
that was tasked with improving the communications process districtwide.
The committee was highly productive and made suggestions that have
already yielded many communications changes, districtwide. Some of these
have been livestreaming of events, including Board of Education
meetings, creating more opportunities for the school district and
students to connect with community members, and more consistent use of
Google classroom for parents. Another suggestion, to create one central
East Rockaway community calendar, is in the process of being
investigated with the necessary organizations. With its success, the
Board intends to continue the committee this year and is seeking
Participation is limited to approximately eighteen participants and the
Board is seeking a diverse and balanced group of interested community
members to join Board members and district representatives in an
engaging and focused dialogue about communication methods and messaging
strategies. The committee meets quarterly.
