About School Talk

Community engagement is about building connections. It's about helping our schools relate to our community just as much as it is about helping our citizens relate to our schools. Through community engagement, we seek to create community conversations that result in collaborations through which we take action together to meet challenges facing our children and schools. The result is a greater understanding of community values, deeper understanding of school system goals and high levels of community trust and involvement in its schools.

Our community information video series, School Talk, is designed to provide community residents with more information about school programs and services and to enhance the opportunities for county residents to be involved with the programs and services. Watch School Talk episodes below, in order from newest to oldest.
