Letter: District 302 announces new social media implementation

By on August 29, 2013

In addition to our existing communication tools, Kaneland School District 302 is pleased to announce new social media to enhance communication between home and school. We are excited to introduce the following social media to keep you informed about everything happening in Kaneland schools. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr to stay up-to-date on the latest news within the Kaneland school community. Each of the social media strategies will support the district-wide goal to increase communications between home and school.

Kaneland School District will use Facebook to share school achievement information, event announcements, deadline reminders and links to external media coverage with parents and community members. Twitter will enable Kaneland School District 302 to quickly share important information about its schools and provide quick links to school news posted on the web.

As winter months approach, the district will use Facebook and Twitter, in conjunction with the emergency calling system, to announce school closings and bus information. The new district blog on Tumblr will allow parents, students and community members to see all the ways Kaneland Schools excel: classroom projects, special events, and student and staff successes. The blog will consistently contain articles featuring students and teachers.

The above communications will support existing tools such as the KCNewsletter and Konnect Mobile Application and disseminate important school information across several platforms. Visit the new Kaneland School District 302 website at www.kaneland.org to quickly access social media and become an online supporter of Kaneland schools.

Superintendent of Schools, District 302
