Welcome to Our Blog!

How can we make communication easy enough that it will actually happen? This blog hopes to provide at least a part of that answer. I write the post and you read it—it’s that simple. No going to the Xerox machine to run multiple copies which are then distributed to schools, where even more copies are made, which are then distributed to mailboxes, where others quickly read and toss or try to figure out where to file random pieces of paper. Put your hands on that communication a couple of weeks later? Good luck!

Seconds after I write this post, it is available for you to read. Don’t worry about printing it out and filing it—come back next week, next month, or next year, and it’s going to be here for your review.

Coming soon will be a calendar not only for the system as a whole, but for each school. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what’s going on around the school system with a couple of clicks of your mouse? Stay tuned. It’s going to happen.

Last week, Mobile hosted the School Improvement Summit sponsored by the Alabama State Dept. of Education. Doug Campbell, Pattie Thomas, Jody Parker, and I represented our school system. This blog is a result of discussions amongst our team on ways to beef-up communication.

This is exactly why I am proud that you are at the board office now. Communication is the name of the game. Everyone likes to feel as if they are "in the know."

Excellent idea! I agree with Mrs. Willis' comment. Will Special Ed. get one too?

Mrs. Cooley,
No plans at present for a seperate blog for special ed. One thing we will do is get accurate e-mail addresses for everyone and share those so that I get get info to all special ed teachers quickly and we can all communicate with each other easily

I agree. Let's close the communication gap.
