Strategic Plan Update

2014 - Communications

As a part of School District 145's strategic plan, we have been focusing resources on improving communication with our internal and external stakeholders.  This has included a wide variety of efforts and initiatives that have successfully enhanced communication.  The data contained in this article is part of the evidence we have gathered and we will continue to gather additional information to evaluate our improvement efforts.  In March of 2013, we conducted a parent climate survey and specific feedback we received led us to develop an emphasis on communication. We recognize there is still room for improvement, and are striving to build upon our success.

The district utilizes a service called SchoolMessenger to communicate with parents and patrons.  This program helps us send out messages both to mass groups of stakeholders as well as messages targeted at specific groups.  Using our student information system (PowerSchool) in conjunction with the SchoolMessenger software, we have improved the ability to utilize the service.  For example, this integration helps us target a specific group of students by grade, teacher, building, or activities involved in.  You can see from the data chart to the right that we have increased the utilization of the service three-fold during the 2013-14 school year.
