Communications position in West Jefferson Hills eliminated
West Jefferson Hills School District officials say they're taking a new approach for public relations, after eliminating the district's communication consultant position on Thursday night.
Board members approved the elimination of the position in an 8-0 vote.
Board Vice President Shauna D'Alessandro was absent. Mimi Haley has held the position for the last 14 years, though her role has changed during that time, Superintendent Michael Panza said.
Panza said district officials are looking to improve use of technology to communicate with parents and students.
“The technology has been available here and we're not using it to its fullest potential and we'd like to do that,” Panza said.
District officials are considering contracting with a public relations firm, Panza said.
