Communications, Family & Community Engagement
The mission of the Communications, Family, and Community Engagement Department is to provide valuable, timely, helpful, and interesting information to students, parents, employees, and community residents regarding the operations, endeavors, and achievements of the School District of Manatee County.
Since 2015, the department’s team of professionals have won two Golden Achievement Awards from the National School Public Relations Association (2017 and 2018) and two state-wide awards from the Sunshine State School Public Relations Association (2017-2018). The team also assisted the school district in passing two county-wide voter referendums in 2016 and 2018.
Whether it is highlighting student successes on social media, developing innovative programs for school volunteers and business partners, explaining new educational initiatives on MSTV, or working with local Emergency Management leaders and area media in the midst of crisis; the Communications, Family and Community Engagement Department is here to keep you informed and involved in our students and schools.
