Many people probably haven't visited a school since walking out the door upon graduation. Today, there are endless opportunities for the community to interact with Bend-La Pine Schools. You can volunteer your time at any school site, participate or donate in the Education Foundation or become a Key Communicator. Read below to learn more.
To provide accurate information in a timely way, Bend-La Pine Schools has a formal network called "Key Communicators." The basic concept is quite simple. Key communicators will be contacted via e-mail with information about schools, and whenever there is a need to quickly disseminate information about something that is of particular interest to the community. They will be asked, as a key communicator, to relay that information to friends, neighbors and co-workers as they would normally reach within the course of a day. If someone has a question, concern or an idea, the key communicator has direct access to school officials by phone or e-mail. There may also be times where key communicators will be asked to give advice and insights on issues facing the school district.
The network is very informal. There are no regular meetings, no officers, no assignments. By using e-mail, a key communicator network is a cost effective, efficient way to keep accurate information flowing to the community, and creates an easy-to-use pathway for people like you to touch base with district officials.
If you're interested in learning more about the school district and how you can be a key communicator, contact the Public Information office at (541) 355-1003.
Volunteer Your Time
Investing your time, energy and knowledge at a school or directly in a classroom can be a very rewarding experience for you and those you help. When you work with students, you have an opportunity to make a difference in their lives...assisting in a classroom, coaching a team, helping out in the library, or simply handling recess or bus duty.
If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the Bend-La Pine Schools online volunteer application. It's quick and easy, and once you've submitted your application, the school district will perform the appropriate background checks to ensure the safety of our students. We typically receive the results within a week. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Bend-La Pine Schools!
