Communications

(Back to Plan Homepage)

The South Glens Falls CSD prides itself on transparent, two-way communications with its stakeholders.

  • The district has engaged school stakeholders and community members, including administrators, faculty, staff, students, parents/legal guardians of students, local health departments, local health care providers, unions and community-based groups in the development of its reopening plans through surveys, town halls, meetings, discussion and opportunities to submit feedback/ask questions.
  • The district’s reopening plan will be posted on the homepage of the district website, www.sgfcsd.org.
  • As part of its planning for the reopening of schools and the new academic year, the district has developed a plan for communicating all necessary information to district staff, students, parents/guardians, visitors and education partners and vendors. The district will use its existing communication channels – including email, the district website and social media – as well as appropriate signage and training opportunities, to support the dissemination of consistent messaging regarding new protocols and procedures, expectations, requirements and options related to school operations throughout the pandemic.
  • The district will make every effort to ensure that communication to parents/legal guardians is in their preferred language and mode of communication. Translation of materials will take place on an as-needed basis for families. The district will also be adding a translation plug-in to its website to make it possible for anyone to automatically translate it into a preferred language.
  • The district will use existing internal and external communications channels to notify staff, students and families/caregivers about in-person, remote and hybrid school schedules with as much advance notice as possible. In the event of a sudden closure, the district will work with local media partners to assist with dissemination of the information.
