Welcome to Communication and Community Engagement

FCUSD’s Office of Communication and Community Engagement fosters relationships that build understanding and support for our public schools by facilitating transparent, two-way communication. We do this by sharing the District’s story with our students, staff, families, and community, and by building partnerships that maintain and enhance resources that support student achievement.
Folsom Cordova News and Information
We keep the community connected to school success by proactively sharing news from our schools through a variety of channels, including our website, our District Digest e-newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, just to name a few.
Public Relations and Media Relations
Our office serves as a liaison to the news media and the general public so that we can keep our community informed of our successes and up-to-date during emergencies and crises. 
Community Engagement
Our valuable relationships with leaders throughout our school communities - from business to nonprofits to government to faith-based organizations - provide resources for our schools and support student achievement. 
Strategic Communication and Marketing 
Our schools create myriad opportunities and personalized pathways for individual students to meet their full potential and succeed in the 21st century. We help schools inform families of the excellent educational choices in FCUSD and identify opportunities for involvement.
