- Create a two-way communication process that allows the certified and classified staff to interact with the administration; consider how staff concerns are addressed and then communicated to all staff members; consider how student behavioral concerns are addressed and cascaded to the staff..
- Establish a comprehensive external communications strategy that attempts to engage and earn the trust of residents who do not, or no longer have, a direct connection to Canton Local Schools; develop consensus on appropriate communication channels and tactics; create consistent communication with all community stakeholders, in particular with current families.
