The PCSC Communications Department supports the district with internal and external communications regarding school and community.
Thanks to a partnership with the Central Indiana Education Services Cooperative, we're able to produce a video each year that tells a specific story about Plainfield Schools. With so many stories to share, it is hard to keep each one to a manageable two-three minutes! You'll find the video links below.
We publish a newsletter twice a year, usually in January and July. That newsletter is mailed to all residents of Guilford Township. Please let us know if you are a township resident and are not receiving one!
- Preparing Students through Exploration
- Excitement, Achievement, Challenge: The Plainfield Way
From time-to-time, we host community or parent forums on a variety of topics. We will share the presentation materials in this location.
SETTING THE BAR: OUR COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER
DO I REALLY NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE MOBILE APP?
In today’s world, people are accessing online data from their phones or mobile devices more than ever. In fact, 80% of adults in the United States use their mobile phone to consume online information. And according to a recent Yahoo! study, 90% of consumers spend their mobile time using apps, not browsers. We recognized the need to move to a website that works as well as a mobile application as it does on a desktop computer. In fact, 24% of adults ages 30 – 49 no longer have broadband internet at home – they conduct nearly all of their online activity via smart phones.
We’ve also learned that many people thought they were using the mobile app, when instead they were finding their way to the website from the browser on their phone or tablet. There is a big difference, and ultimately, you may choose to use both.
If you'd like to check the weekly lunch menu, or follow the latest news, blog posts or Facebook and Twitter posts from PCSC or any of the schools, then the mobile app is great. If you want to read the bios of our district administrators or school board members, you’ll find that information on the website. Want to call a school or email a teacher? You can do that directly from the app, without having to copy and paste a phone number or email address.
BASIC MOBILE APP NAVIGATION
On your mobile device, you can download the app by going to the App Store (Apple or Google) and searching “Plainfield Community School Corporation.” The app is free, of course.
Once you've installed the app, click the red circle in the upper right corner, and then select a school. The red circle on the left is the menu, and you can select the area you want to visit from this tab.
