Leadership Team Protocol

The APS Leadership Team follows regular practices to create transparent, two-way communication with stakeholders. Below is a description of these practices.

  • Meetings
    • Weekly Leadership Team Meetings
      • The Leadership Team generally meets on Tuesday mornings.
      • Leadership Team conducts general business at these meetings, and subject experts join the Leadership Team to provide background and information about agenda items.
      • Leadership Team agendas are posted for review by APS staff members on its web age. After meetings, agendas will be updated to identify outreach strategies for agenda items.
  • Superintendent's Bulletin
    • The Superintendent's Bulletin is generally published twice monthly.  The bulletin is distributed via email to all staff and includes:
      • A message from the superintendent
      • Special announcements
      • Informational Items
      • Items requiring actions from principals
      • Division newsletters
      • Reminders
  • Email and Letters
    • When needed, the Leadership Team provides email or letters to staff with updates on current topics, such as safety and staff recognition.
    • Prior to sending emails districtwide, staff members must first obtain approval from their division's Leadership Team representative. The goal of this is to reduce the number of districtwide emails that staff receive. View the APS email protocol.
