Communication/Family and Community Engagement

Regular and frequent communication between schools, families, and the wider community has been an essential element of effective family and community engagement.  The Canajoharie Central School District will continue to inform all stakeholders to ensure that the proper information is disseminated to families, community members, faculty and staff.   We created a Reopening Committee consisting of parents/guardians, faculty, staff and administration, Building Level Committees and Safety Committee to ensure that all voices were heard and there was constant collaboration throughout the process.  The district administration gathered information from the committees and survey, along with guidance from the NYSED and Department of Health to formulate the best plan possible in respect to the resources, staffing and facilities we have.
