Key Communicators Committee
In the fall of 2013, the East Pennsboro Area School District formed a Parent Key Communicator network comprised of parent volunteers. District Superintendent Dr. Jay Burkhart facilitates the meetings and the meetings are attended by School Board Members.
The goal of this group is to increase communication between the district office, the schools and the parent community. The group will work to identify areas that need further clarification so that common understanding is possible, and build bridges between schools by providing parents with a forum where connections can be made. Although parent key communicators may not always have immediate answers to all the questions raised by other parents, these volunteers strengthen the line of communication for parents who seek information. The group will help the district better understand parent concerns.
