Communication Expectations

>>Download a PDF of these guidelines

In order to support open communication within Edison’s school community, multiple opportunities for discussing and sharing information, ideas, and concerns have been opened. Your appropriate use of these tools will continue to build our Edison community to be a thoughtful, creative and positive culture.

Opportunities for communication:

  • 1 on 1 conversations with teachers and/or administration
  • Phone calls
  • Emails
  • “Eagles Roost Blog” (The school’s administration blog. You will be required to register and all blog comments will be moderated before they appear on the blog. No anonymous commenting will be allowed.)
  • Teacher/classroom blogs and web pages
  • Facebook
  • Twitter

In an effort to ensure confidentiality, respect and positive communication, all social media will be monitored by the PTA Communications committee. Posts that break school confidentiality laws or are disrespectful will not be approved to be posted.

Please keep in mind the following as you post:

  • Due to confidentiality laws, we cannot post students first and last name or pictures of students without written permission by legal guardians.
  • Teacher or other adult’s names should not be posted anywhere without that person’s express permission.
  • Concerns about specific student issues should be brought directly to teachers or administrators for private problem solving with a goal of a positive, successful school experience for all students at Edison.

A positive school culture must be our first priority. Please remember the norms of our community forum:

  • Listen to understand.
  • Respect the views of others.
  • Suspend judgment.
  • Speak for yourself in the service of the group.
