Atlanta Public Schools wants to keep parents updated on what’s happening in our schools. Here are some of the ways we keep you informed:
2009-10 Guidebook – This comprehensive booklet is delivered to parents during the first week of school. It contains the bus safety brochure, school listings, educational programs and key dates.
APS District Web site (www.atlantapublicschools.us) – Our Web site has been modified so parents can easily access information about the district and our schools. The most popular feature is a listing of all APS schools, but parents also will find press releases, photo galleries and videos featuring students and faculty.
School Web Sites – APS debuted individual school Web sites last year. Bookmark your child’s school Web site and track events or locate faculty and staff. All school sites are listed under the “Schools” section of the District Web site.
Talk Up APS (www.talkupaps.com) – Hey, you’re reading it right now! This online version will be updated throughout the week. It is housed on our District Web site, and will be distributed via email twice monthly.
The Atlanta Educator – This newspaper features students, teachers and administrators who are part of the APS success story. If you have a story idea, email Morieka Johnson, Director of APS Publications, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Family Matters – This glossy newsletter offers all the news that parents can use to stay informed on their children’s education. As with The Atlanta Educator, email story ideas to Morieka Johnson at email@example.com.
Community Fireside Chats – Get district updates and submit questions at these events hosted by Superintendent Dr. Beverly L. Hall.
Social Networking – Follow APS progress 24/7 by joining us on Twitter (search for “APSupdate” and click “follow”). Get short information blasts on everything regarding APS, including links to all of the information above as well as updates on media coverage, emergency information, and news from individual schools. Short, sweet and to the point!
