Key Communicators Network

Overview of the Program

The goal of the group is to increase two-way communication between the district and the community. The group works to identify areas that need further clarification leading to a common understanding of issues, policies and actions of the district.

The program is designed to improve two-way communication with our community. Key Communicators gather information from the community at-large regarding their perceptions, questions and/or opinions. Equally important, they help spread information back to the community creating a partnership with UCFSD.

People talking to people. Even with all of the electronic channels of communication we have today, word of mouth is still king. The Key Communicators Network is set up as a personal two-way communication channel between the school district and its stakeholders. It's about people, access and communication.

**Program FAQs**

Who Can Be a Key Communicator?

We think anyone who lives, works, or shops within our community can be a member of key communicator. We are always looking for opinion leaders among the various stakeholder groups. We have an open invitation to the community to come join us. Send an email our communications coordinator (ucfsdcommunications@ucfsd.net) to be added to the group.

Why Have a Key Communicator Group?

The concept of key communicators is considered one of the best ways to create open information sharing within our community. Not all issues can be easily understood from emails, blog posts and the like. Not all issues are easy to understand without an understanding of nuance and background. The network provides a vehicle where we make the extra effort to get together in person and via electronic media to explain issues and to engage in conversation. The goal of the program is to keep our community members informed about what’s going on in the district. We are accountable as educators and stewards of the community's tax dollar. We want to know what the community concerns,and incorporate that into all decisions.

What is the Role of a Key Communicator?
  • Key Communicators attend three meetings a year
  • Key communicators receive e-mails from the district with timely information on important matters.
  • Key communicators will share information about district issues informally with their friends and colleagues in the course of their regular day. They disseminate accurate information about the district, correct misinformation, and hear what the community has to say about the district.
  • Key communicators agree to contact the district when they hear positive or negative feedback, rumors, questions, and ideas from people in the community. The district can then move quickly to address these issues
