• The Parkway Communications Department supports the Parkway mission to ensure “all students are capable, curious, caring and confident learners who understand and respond to the challenges of an ever-changing world.”

    The Communications Department provides transparent, timely, relevant and consistent communication with stakeholders. We value two-way conversations with our community and strong relationships as the foundation of a strong public school system.

    A comprehensive communications plan is designed to establish a strategic process for effective communications, planning and evaluation aligned with Parkway’s strategic goals and our Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP). The plan is reviewed on an annual basis to align with district objectives.
