Communicating for Success!

Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District

A Message from Community Engagement

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! You and your family have completed the first week with all of its new routines, new classes, and new relationships. Well done!

As Director of Community Engagement for the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District, I would like to introduce myself and our department. Throughout the year, you will receive emails and messages sent from me that are district-wide in scope. Emails will come from, and texts (sent occasionally) will come from 606-80. Please note that all of our administrators and teachers will also be communicating with you, and texts from them will come from the same number. I encourage you to add 606-80 to your contacts.

The purpose of the Community Engagement Department is to do just that - engage with our community. While the scope of our community is wide, including community members, organizations and partners outside the district, our primary goal is to make sure our parents and guardians are informed and feel connected to what is happening at school, throughout our district, and in our community.

Results from last year's Parent Engagement Survey indicated that families find

comprehensive communication to be of utmost importance in their ability to support their child's education. With that in mind, I wanted to share and define the various ways communication is sent from our district as well as updates that have been made to existing communication tools.
