Farmington Schools trustees to discuss new communication plan

Farmington Public Schools trustees will on Wednesday talk about a “Channels of Communication” plan designed to “reduce rumors, increase accountability, and maximize our administrative time for instructional leadership.”

Outlined in a chart included with supporting materials for the October 2 Board of Education meeting, the plan moves up from classroom teachers to principals, then administrative department heads, the superintendent, and finally, elected officials:

Channels of Communication

The same path applies to students, parents, community members, and even the Board of Education. Trustees are encouraged to refer anyone with concerns to the appropriate channel.

Other items on the 6 p.m. meeting agenda include recognition of Principals Month, updates from the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) Council and Farmington African American Parents Network, and a report on M-STEP standardized testing.

School board meetings are typically broadcast live on cable channel TV-10 and live-streamed at, where you’ll find an archive of previous meetings and other district videos.
