DISTRICT Communications

Royal Oak Schools aims to communicate with its citizens and provide accurate, timely, and useful information to all interested individuals. The Communications Department highlights the great things happening across our district in many ways! We showcase student and staff projects, awards, achievements, and initiatives on our district website, social media pages, our district newsletter, and through our local media.

Families and community members can keep up on the latest information related to the district through updates on Facebook (@RoyalOakSchools), in The District Dispatch, on WOAK (the Royal Oak educational access channel), and in Royal Oak Insight/Your Schools. Click "Subscribe to eNews" at the top of this page to ensure you're receiving the latest and greatest information.  

Is there something happening you think we should share? Tell us about it! 

If you're a member of the media looking for more information, or a community member with a great story idea, contact the district Communications Specialist, Amy Murphy at amy.murphy@royaloakschools.org.

Ways We Communicate

Royal Oak Schools believes positive school communication is critical to the support and success of our schools and students. It is our hope that improved communications with the community will further strengthen that relationship. The Communications Department utilizes a variety of tools to communicate directly with students and parents, community partners, and other key stakeholders to ensure our messages are clear and our audiences are connected to all that's going on in the District.

Capital Projects

CAPITAL PROJECTS: INVESTING IN OUR STUDENTS & THEIR SCHOOLS

Safe, secure, and equipped to support the learning of all students. Our facilities support student learning and are resources for the entire Royal Oak community. Using proceeds from property sales (which are maintained in a Property Maintenance Fund) as well as annual revenue from the building site and sinking fund (a dedicated 1 mill levy for capital projects) our schools have been working to maintain and improve our schools, a critical community resource.
