Communications and Grants

Communications

The Sparta Area School District is always looking for ways to increase communication with students, staff, parents and community members. To do so, we use social media to tell the stories and share photos of the great things happening in our elementary, middle, high and charter schools as well as staff initiatives. On our school district website, Facebook webpage, Twitter account (webpage), and Blog (webpage), you’ll also be able to find highlights from our fantastic co-curricular offerings as well as feature stories and photos from our classrooms.

The Sparta Area School District and its schools, programs, activities and athletics have social media sites that provide updates about the great things they are doing and ways to get involved. The Social Media Directory is a comprehensive list of Sparta Area School District pages. If there is a page that is not listed, please contact District Communications Coordinator Melanie Johnson.

If you are a District staff member and have a story idea that you would like to see posted on our District sites or shared through a news release, please email communications@spartan.org.

If you are a member of the media and would like to do a story in the Sparta Area School District, please contact Melanie Johnson at mejohnson@spartan.org or (608) 366-3400 ext. 6312 or a building administrator.

Grants

The Sparta Area School District (SASD) takes a proactive approach to supplementing local funding resources by applying for grants that will enhance its mission to “provide students of all backgrounds and potentials with a rich academic experience in a safe and supportive environment.” The grant policy as outlined in Article 166 (PDF) supports the District’s educational philosophy and Board of Education goals.
