HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Hattiesburg Public School District officials will put a renewed emphasis on keeping the district's website fresh and updated after a recent survey revealed parents were using it as their primary source of school information.
The Hattiesburg American reports (http://hatne.ws/1qmTgI2 ) district communications director Jas N Smith conducted the survey during mid- to late-June to find out how parents and community members were getting their district information and what news they felt they were missing.
About 100 people responded to the survey. Twenty-seven percent said the district's website was where they went to get information, while 20 percent said they would prefer a phone call. Only 10 percent said letters and 11 percent said flyers in their child's backpack.
