Grand Erie District School Board is committed to improve and expand our ongoing communication with students, parents, staff, and the community so that we can work collaboratively to provide the best education possible. This commitment is outlined in our Multi-Year Plan under the area of Engagement.
To effectively and efficiently meet this goal, the Board in 2011-12 engaged the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) to conduct a communication audit. The audit assessed the Board’s communication, public relations, and engagement efforts and provided recommendations to improve and enhance internal and external communication.
