Community & Media Relations

CBSS encourages your active participation in the education of your children.

It is the mission of the Community and Media Relations Office to provide leadership in communications and community engagement that support the City of Baker School System's Strategic Plan, its schools, staff and students.

The Community Relations area includes initiatives based on the believe that:

  • effective communication is a two-way process involving both internal and external audiences.
  • establishing positive relationships with key audiences of parents, business leaders and community builds support for public schools and education.
  • meaningful public engagement encourages community involvement in education that benefits children and increases student achievement.
  • the community plays an important and vital role in the success of our schools.

The City of Baker School System is committed to developing programs that give the Baker community an opportunity to make a positive impact in our schools. Community members can participate in special programs or help improve the literacy skills of our students by taking part in reading opportunities. Community members are also encouraged to contact individual schools to learn about more ways they can impact education in the schools.

The City of Baker School System's Media Relations area seeks to promote and market the district's programs, and initiatives through a range of communication vehicles and by working with the media. The department also assists District staff in media relations, public information, and crisis management as well as developing communication initiatives.

The Community and Media Relations Department is designed to meet current and emerging critical needs. We are reaching out to concerned parents, volunteers, community leaders and civic organizations to become partners with us in delivering a quality education to the children we serve.

We hope that through the use of this web site and our newsletter, the Buffalo Times, that we can keep our stake holders informed of what is happening in the Baker system as well as promote all the great students that walk through the doors of our five schools.

Effective TWO-WAY communication is vital to this process. If you have comments or observations regarding our web site or the Buffalo Times, please send  the information to the City of Baker WebTeam.
