Communications works to produce a free flow of information to parents, teachers, and the Bakersfield community, to continue to strive to be the District of choice.
Some of the publications our department is responsible for include: The Direct Connection and the Guide for Parents and Students. Information is also provided to the local media about everything from new legislation to educational events and District progress.
Our translation team provides Spanish translation of documents in the District. These documents help keep limited-English speakers fully informed about their child and the BCSD.
The technology explosion has placed the onus on the District to provide increasing access to information via the web. The Communications department maintains several areas of the District website.
Communications also manages video production. Videos are used to assist, inform, train, and teach. Video Taping Request forms are available on our website and should be submitted 3 weeks in advance.
Please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions regarding the Communications Department.
