@SolancoSchlDistFollow Solanco on Twitter for messages from principals and teachers, and also interesting information and photos about student activities and accomplishments, and events in all seven Solanco schools.

Effective communications and parent and public engagement are important factors in the success of our students and schools. Therefore, the Solanco School District is committed to establishing and maintaining on-going, two-way communications with parents and  local residents, business owners and operators, community organizations, elected officials, emergency responders, the media and others in our community.

Solanco’s Director of Community Relations develops and implements plans to inform local residents about school district policy and programs. The Community Relations Director encourages community support and involvement in our schools and student activities, and generates media coverage of successful Solanco students and staff.

A number of communications tools are used to “tell the Solanco story”.
