KPBSD is forming a network of people who are interested in our schools in order to cultivate positive relationships with the school district and our diverse communities. Key Communicators will help people in their local communities know more about KPBSD, while also assisting our school district learn and understand more about what people think, feel, and know. The concept is to promote a continuing exchange between Key Communicators and the school district.
People move in the direction of their conversations, and the idea is that KPBSD Key Communicators will be kept informed through email messages, media releases, and newsletters from the KPBSD district office communications.
Create a loosely connected group of parents and citizens for two way communication and to broaden community advocates. Conversations happen every day in school parking lots, at the grocery store, via social media, and so forth.
KPBSD Communicators are asked to simply read the emails and information sent from KPBSD Communications, and potentially share any misconceptions, perceptions, or concerns they hear about with KPBSD communications. If a particular issue arises, we may opt to ask brief questions, utilize an area gathering, Lync meetup, or broaden our understanding by directly contacting Key Communicators. Participation in KPBSD Key Communicators is open, with no time frame limit; an annual survey will be conducted to determine shifts needed to grow positive and effective communications.
School principals will nominate 2-3 people in their school community and provide Pegge Erkeneff, communications specialist, with their name, context, connection, or position in the community, and contact information including email, address, and telephone, by November 27, 2013.
Email invitations will be sent to all nominated Key Communicators no later than December 9, 2013, inviting them to consider a yes to become more informed about the school district, an advocate, and KPBSD Key Communicator.
If you are interested in becoming a KPBSD Key Communicator, please email Pegge Erkeneff, communications specialist, at Communications@kpbsd.org.
