Key Communicator Network

We at Springfield Public Schools believe in the importance of communication. The Key Communicator Network was created to help us ensure a smooth flow of information between the school district and our community.

Who can become a Key Communicator?
A Key Communicator can be any community member who is interested in advocating quality public education throughout our community. Key Communicators can be parents, grandparents, local business people, community leaders, religious leaders and anyone else interested in the schools. Through their influence, networking, and willingness to share ideas, Key Communicators will help shape our future.

What are the Key Communicators' responsibilities?
Awareness is a Key Communicator’s primary responsibility. Aside from attending 2 to 3 meetings each year, it is our hope that in the course of your day-to-day lives, they will:
•    Receive information directly from SPS (most often, via email).
•    Stay informed through the information provided.
•    Serve as an advocate and unofficial spokesperson for public education.
•    Provide feedback and input on activities and issues facing the school district.
•    Relay to the district any questions or concerns heard from the public.


Our "no spam" policy means that we work hard to limit the communications with our Key Communicators to critical information or district-level happenings. Members can "opt out" of the mailing list at any time.

How can I become a Key Communicator?
Our network of Key Communicators (currently 208) has grown steadily over the years as a result of nominations from other community members, referrals by staff, etc. If you would like to be a Key Communicator or want to recommend someone else to be invited, please send an email to Deb Jolda, deb.jolda@springfield.k12.or.us.
