Communications

West Platte Communications & Community Engagement Department strives to increase awareness, understanding, involvement, and support for our schools by communicating effectively and engaging our community. A key component, to achieving success at West Platte, is to increase student achievement and improve school performance by building a strong partnership between West Platte and our families, community and staff.

As we increase educational opportunities for our students, the Communications Department empowers families, community and staff to make better informed decisions and encourage participation on issues affecting our school and the district. The Communications Department values public participation affecting our schools and the surrounding community. Our students are our most valuable resource.
