Our Communications Plan
Jefferson County School District 509J is committed to providing timely, accurate and clear communication to all stakeholders. We seek to provide resources and materials to ensure families, students, staff, partners, media, citizens, and other members of the community are kept informed about our key priorities, successes, and challenges.
The Communications department works with schools and departments to ensure that everyone is informed and up to date on student’s, staff’s, and faculty’s experience in 509J schools.
We aim to ensure that families, students, staff, and the community know that students flourish here, we care for each other, and we get better every day.
We aim to celebrate the successes that happen every day in our buildings. If you wish to share an idea with us, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We communicate through multiple channels including social media networks and our direct communication tool, ParentSquare. In order to receive important updates from the district, please ensure your contact information is up to date by checking with your children’s school.
