What is a Key Communicator Network?
The Pendleton School District is interested in establishing solid two-way communication with our public. Essentially, a Key Communicator Network is a network of opinion leaders who establish this solid two-way communication among organizations and their public. These opinion leaders talk to many people who tend to listen to what they have to say. They keep in touch with school officials and immediately report questions, concerns, rumors, etc.
Why do we need a Key Communicator Network?
Improved communication with the public is likely to lead to better education at the school because the community will be more informed, which should lead to more involvement and support for students. Improved communication should also increase the level of trust our community has in the Pendleton School District.
