COMMUNICATIONS CONNECTION

The School Board, administration, and teaching staff recognize that parents and community are important partners in educating children. Building a strong relationship between home, school, and community is critical to a quality education. As such, it is an ongoing School Board goal to build understanding through effective internal and external communications systems.

As a parent or resident, when you need specific information, it is important to begin at the appropriate level. As a parent, for instance, when questions arise about classroom activities, the first place to start is with the teacher. The following chain outlines the protocol for school information:

  • Teacher or counselor
  • Principal
  • Director of Special Education (When appropriate)
  • Superintendent of Schools
  • School Board

The School Board and administration make efforts to inform parents and citizens about school events. Generally, the School Board meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month in the Music Room at Sunapee Middle High School. There is "Public Forum" on each agenda which gives the opportunity for the public to address the School Board at these meetings. Please check the District's website or contact the Superintendent's Office for a detailed schedule of meetings. Information about the Sunapee School District can be found at www.sunapeeschools.org
