Office of Community Engagement

The Office of Community Engagement is responsible for the coordination and oversight of the district's public relations, communications, community outreach, as well as all system and school events. Each school in the district has a designated School Communications Specialist working in coordination with the Office of Community Engagement, and five high school students serve in the role of public relations interns reporting to the Director of CE.

With an overarching goal of connecting people through a shared interest of education, the Office of Community Engagement values open, honest communication with all stakeholders and believes in cultivating positive working relationships with students, parents/guardians, employees, community members, business leaders, and the media. Lumpkin County Schools is strongest when all stakeholders are well-informed and engaged participants in the educational process.
