Community Engagement and Communications

  • The District 742 Community Engagement and Communications department ensures public awareness, understanding, trust and support for St. Cloud Area Schools.

    The Community Engagement and Communications team is dedicated to the district’s core values and strategic plan and operates strategically and collaboratively to engage families, staff and community partners in the important work of our schools. As a public institution, the district is committed to delivering clear, timely information about the business of schools and strives to facilitate a two-way communication process that involves internal and external stakeholders.

    • E-newsletters
    • News releases
    • Crisis communications
    • Publications
    • Website
    • Social media
