educators in the education of their students.

type of medium.

Communication Plan
DCHS will encourage parent involvement through the following organizations: athletics, band, cheerleading, FFA,
FCCLA, VICA, UIL academics, art club, Spanish club, FCA, Student Council and National Honor Society. Include
parents on all decision-making and advisory committees, and ensure adequate training for such areas as policy,
curriculum, budget, school reform initiatives, safety, and personnel. Where site based governing bodies exist, give equal
representation to parents. This includes any site-based committees both district and school-wide.
Every year, DCHS will also communicate with parents, students and stakeholders through Open House, Meet the
Mustangs, JAM (Just Ask Me) Session, Fall Festival, Career Day, School Board Meetings, Class Meetings, PTSA
Meetings.
Use different means of communication to inform parents and stakeholders of events and performance of the school.
This includes: The Stampede monthly newsletter, Twitter, Facebook, Denver City Press Articles, Website Updates,
Survey Monkey and SchoolReach. Stakeholders include parents, taxpayers, churches and religious affiliates,
legislators, school alumni, families without children in school, and businesses.
Beginning in April of the previous year, provide clear information regarding course expectations and offerings, student
placement, school activities, student services, and optional programs.
Mail report cards every six weeks and regular progress reports every three weeks to parents. Provide support services
and follow-up conferences as needed. Supply information to assist parents in understanding how students can improve
skills, get help when needed, meet class expectations, and perform well on assessments.
In August, circulate information on school reforms, policies, discipline procedures, assessment tools, and school goals,
and include parents in any related decision-making process.
Every week, Administrators from all Denver City ISD campuses will meet to discuss goals and make decisions to
implement new strategies for the district. They will report on the happenings in their individual campuses.
Every month, administrators from each campus will attend the monthly School Board Meeting to represent their campus
interest and report for their campus to the board.
Every year, DCHS will provide staff development regarding effective communication techniques and the importance of
regular two-way communication between the school and the family.
Conduct conferences with parents at least twice a year, with follow-up as needed. These should accommodate the
varied schedules of parents, language barriers, and the need for child care. Encourage immediate contact between
parents and teachers when concerns arise.
Translate communications to assist non-English-speaking parents.
Communicate with parents regarding positive student behavior and achievement, not just regarding misbehavior or
failure this will include positive contacts from teachers and principal letters sent every six weeks.
