Communications Department

The Communications Department works each day to build a stronger relationship between the schools in the district, central administration and the community to provide opportunities for success for the children of the Tennessee Valley.

Successful communication that builds relationships is a two-way process where Hamilton County Schools both provides information about its schools to the community and listens to the hopes and dreams the citizens have for our children.  Informing the community is accomplished through face-to-face discussion, working with local media outlets, social media, online web, video content, printed communications and the telephone notification system.  The department is intentional in listening to the community using personal discussion, small groups, surveys, and large public forums.

The focus of the Communications Department is supporting teachers and schools by building relationships with parents and the community that will ensure the success of children after graduation.
