Key Communicator Network
What is a Key Communicator Network?
The Pendleton School District is interested in establishing solid two-way communication with our public. Essentially, a Key Communicator Network is a network of opinion leaders who establish this solid two-way communication among organizations and their public. These opinion leaders talk to many people who tend to listen to what they have to say. They keep in touch with school officials and immediately report questions, concerns, rumors, etc.
Why do we need a Key Communicator Network?
Improved communication with the public is likely to lead to better education at the school because the community will be more informed, which should lead to more involvement and support for students. Improved communication should also increase the level of trust our community has in the Pendleton School District.
Who are the Pendleton School District's Key Communicators?
How do Key Communicators receive information from the District?
Key Communicators will receive honest, objective, consistent information from the District. The Pendleton School District will communicate the good news -- and will report the bad news. These reports will occur during regular meetings with Key Communicators, in one-on-one conversations with District Office staff, and through regular electronic communications. Key Communicators are encouraged to contact Pendleton School District officials at any time with questions, comments or concerns.
When do Key Communicators meet with the District?
Being a part of the Key Communicator Network does not take an inordinate amount of time. The Key Communicator Network will meet 3-4 times a year over breakfast (provided by the District!). During the 2011-2012 school year, the Key Communicator Network meeting dates are:
- October 20, 2011
- January 19, 2012
- May 17, 2012
Each breakfast meeting begins at 7:30 a.m. in the District Office Conference Room and will last one hour.
