Communications

District & Building/Department Communications

The goal of all district staff is to both timely and effectively communicate with our stakeholders.   The structure of our communications is two-fold:  District and Building/Department level.

  • District-level includes information for all stakeholders including school delays, closures, and crises.
  • Building-level or Department-level includes information to families as related to each building and its services.

Expectations for Staff Communication

The general expectation for all staff is that we communicate in a timely and effective matter with parents, guardians, and other stakeholders.  In the case of families contacting a staff member, the general expectation is the CPU staff member will get back to the person within 24-48 hours depending on the nature of the communication (e.g. a safety concern vs. a non-emergency academic question). Please note this timeframe does not include weekends, holidays, etc.
