To improve family and community engagement and communication throughout the district, Campbell County Schools is adding a Community Education Relations director position.
The position will help lead consistent communications, events, and activities, which Campbell County Schools Superintendent Shelli Wilson said will bring parents and families into their schools and will promote and recognize students and staff.
The recommendation was passed during Monday night’s regularly scheduled Campbell County Board of Education meeting.
Currently, Wilson said the work this one role would handle touches six or seven hands of different positions.
“I think we do a great job of reaching out to the community and providing consistent communications, but we can move faster, and we can do a better job of providing consistent communication information out there,” Wilson said.
She said she looks at this role as an investment because the more positive information that goes out about the schools will bring in more students and resources to the district. Wilson added that if the position was unsuccessful, they could bring it back to the board of education for reconsideration.
“Our desire is to continue to build and enhance relationships with our families,” Wilson said.
