Public Relations works to strengthen communication and foster positive relationships within the community. Since the creation of this position in 2016, the district has launched a new logo, websites, annual reports, social media accounts, mobile application, email newsletter, and communication surveys. In addition, ECS has improved communication through local media, social media, and websites. The goal of PR is to maintain an open line of communication with all stakeholders, and to build upon the already strong sense of pride and trust in the school system. Each September, we invite all stakeholders to give input on school communication in a Communication Survey. Questions and suggestions are welcome throughout the year by calling or emailing Bekah Price.
Media personnel looking to schedule an interview with ECS supervisors, faculty, staff or students should first contact the PR Coordinator. ECS Personnel who have been contacted by the media should notify their principal or supervisor and the PR Coordinator.

A webmaster at each school is prepared to share your news. School stories are first posted on the school’s website and then shared where appropriate on the district site or on our Facebook page.
