Rockwood is dedicated to serving the community. The Rockwood Communication Department helps schools welcome citizens and reaches out in many ways.
The Rockwood School District Website
The Communications Department manages the official Rockwood website. Whether it’s latest news, upcoming events or announcements, the Communications Department uses various media platforms—video, web articles, social media—to keep the community informed.
More than ever, people are using social media sources to learn about what's happening in their schools. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are regularly utilized by the Communications Department to get information to the community.
Rockwood News is the district's newsletter for patrons and taxpayers of the district created by the Communications Department. It is mailed to patrons' home three times a year and included the Annual Report to the Community.
Outreach to Media
There are great things happening in Rockwood every day. The Communications Department not only creates press releases to local media outlets concerning school events, human interest stories and great things teachers and students are doing, but we act as a liaison between schools and media. This allows our teachers and students to avoid as much distraction as possible. Visit the Press Room.
Face-to-face communication builds strong relationships in our school community. That is why Rockwood Communications provides information about these opportunities via an extensive event calendar, plus Community Conversations, School Board Meetings, District Committees and more. In addition, the PTO Presidents’ Forum brings together the parent leaders in all Rockwood schools to learn and share community-building programs that are working in schools.
Community Education and Partners in Education
Rockwood Community Education and Partners in Education are two unique programs that benefit our schools and the community. Adult education and literacy, Adventure Club, visual and performing arts, career shadowing, classroom presentations and Project Interface are just a few of the many offerings of the programs. The Communications Department supports both programs internally and externally.
