Stay Up-To-Date with News Sources:


District Blog: (Go to Blog) 

  • This blog is updated with current news release, event flyers, and featured articles. It also automatically connects with MyConnect the district's mobile app. Learn more about MyConnect below.  

Key Communicators:

  • Key Communicators are parents, community members and alumni who want to stay up-to-date on district wide news. We send weekly email updates to Key Communicators and often include information on School Board Updates, Student Highlights, Upcoming Events, and News Releases. This is also a great way for community members to respond back to the district by emailing questions and comments. 
  • Sign up to be a Key Communicator by simply sending an email to listserv@listserv.battlegroundps.org with your name and preferred email address. This information is confidential and is not shared with any outside organizations. 

Social Media: 

  • The district hosts two social media accounts, a notification system called FlashAlert and the MyConnect Mobile app to share event highlights, spot light student success, and share important emergency related information.  You can follow these sites by clicking the images below.
