KA: School/Community Relations Goals

The Melrose Public School district is an integral part of the community, and community support is necessary for the district’s achievement of excellence. The Committee and school department staff members recognize that community support has a reciprocal effect, resulting in a dynamic process in which the district contributes to the community’s success and, in turn, benefits from the community’s dedication and contributions.

In order to maintain productive relationships with the community, the district is committed to sustaining:

1.         Effective, accurate, and meaningful communication that facilitate dialogue, encourage involvement in district programs, and create community advocacy for its public schools.

2.         Volunteer programs that provide mutually enriching experiences for our students, staff, and community volunteers.

3.         Community service efforts that enable the district’s staff and students to express their commitment to the community.
