Skaneateles Central School District is turning to the public to ask for input as it evaluates its communication.
Public input is being gathered this month through an online survey that can be found at surveymonkey.com/s/skancomm
Good communication is fundamental to any healthy relationship, whether between two people or between a school district and its community. That is why the
Skaneateles Central School District is working to evaluate and strengthen its communication efforts through a multi-tiered, self-reflective communications audit.
An independent BOCES communications service is assisting with this process. Most recently, that involved a series of focus groups involving employees, administrators, board members, parents, students and other community members.
All residents of the district are invited to complete the voluntary and anonymous survey, which is available now through March 21.
“This process is meant to help us identify ways to more effectively meet the communication needs of everyone in our community. We hope to get some honest, constructive feedback,” said Judy Pastel, interim superintendent of schools.
Pastel and school board members have discussed the audit at recent meetings, mentioning that the audit will evaluate both the district’s communication with the community and internally. One area Pastel has said she would like to improve is the district website, skanschools.org.
Ultimately, that feedback will help shape a comprehensive communications audit report for the Skaneateles Board of Education and district leaders.
Anyone seeking assistance with the survey or a paper copy should stop by the District Office, 45 E. Elizabeth St., or call 685-8361.
