Communications and Community Relations

Online Communications

The Communications Department is has refreshed all school websites to reflect the look and functions of the district website. Like the district website, the new school websites are designed to adjust to the size and shape of the screen where they are being viewed, whether on a desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. The new sites also feature an application that will send text reminders of important school dates and events to subscribers’ phones.

The sites contain larger photos that change frequently to showcase school activities, classes and student accomplishments. The sites have been designed to be more visually appealing and to make it faster and easier for visitors to find the information they want.

Visitors to the new sites can instantly translate the text into any one of nine languages other than English with the touch of a button. The new sites also include real-time weather conditions continuously updated from the Venice High School weather station.

We hope you like what you see and we welcome your comments and suggestions. The district's website and school websites are managed by Online Communications Specialist Mina Ajrab and he may be contacted by email at
