What is the Key
It is a network of Troy
School District staff, parents, community members, and board members who are
interested in our schools and are well-connected to the schools and/or the
The idea is to promote a continuing exchange between Key Communicators and the
school district. Key Communicators become the eyes, ears, and mouthpiece for
Why do we need Key Communicators?
Developing one-on-one relationships is an effective means of communicating
within the community. Key Communicators help people know more about our school
district and help our school district understand more about what people think,
feel, and know.
How does the Key Communicator Program work?
Each Key Communicator is asked to
send questions routinely to Superintendent, Christy Castro. These questions may be coming directly from
the Key Communicator or those that the Key Communicator hears from community
members. The Superintendent will
disperse the questions to employees in the district who can best answer the
questions. Once the Superintendent
receives the answers, then they will be included in the Question and Answer
newsletter sent to the Key Communicators on a monthly basis.
Throughout the normal course of the day ─ at a community meeting, at soccer
practice, band practice, or chatting with a neighbor ─ Key Communicators are
asked to share the information then make the Superintendent aware of questions
or concerns by contacting her at 208-835-3791 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Periodically, we may
contact you via telephone or letter to explore a particular issue. There are no
mandatory meetings (except we will invite you to two meetings per year and if
you cannot attend the meeting, then we will update you via email); we simply
ask that you help us keep informed of what our community thinks about what is
happening in our district.
How will the Key Communicator Program benefit
the Troy community?
- The program serves as a valuable
communications tool to monitor and proactively manage issues.
- All community groups are represented, so
your input serves as a sampling of district opinions.
- The program serves to keep the district
grounded in community values and beliefs.
