III. SUPPORT
Promote continual evaluation, optimal usage and long-range planning for athletics, communications, facilities, food services, technology and transportation
Athletics
Objective 1: Align in house documentation with state regulations.
Objective 2: Review and collaborate with other districts who have a high frequency of transfer students.
Communications
Objective 1: Establish a “share-all” system for releases, photos, videos, etc., so that we have an easier way to communicate to the community across all platforms (newsletter, website, social media, media releases) and an efficient way to keep track of what we do.

have a tremendous impact on the district’s image/message.
