District 209 Communications Department Branches Out

September 20, 2013 08:20 AM
Forest Park, IL...There are now even more ways to get information regarding the schools of Proviso Township High Schools District 209.

PTHS 209 recently signed on to Twitter. In addition, the District is partnering with High School Cube to broadcast the home football games for Proviso East High School and Proviso West High School as well as select away games. They are both other ways that the District is working to build bridges to success by increasing communication avenues, boosting its presence on the web, and connecting with stakeholders across multiple platforms.

"It is extremely important for us to keep an open line of communication with stakeholders in District 209 who have a vested interest in the progress and success of our school system," said Mr. Rob Daniel, community and public relations coordinator for District 209. "Hopefully, by utilizing these methods of communication, we can have a more informed, involved, and active following. We hope that parents, teachers, our alumni, and our students will find us so that we can all stay connected and continue to inform."

Stakeholders can follow District 209 on Twitter at  The Twitter account will be used to keep followers up-to-date on all of the latest happenings in District 209 including: news, school closings, special events, and community alerts. By increasing communication across multiple platforms, the District expects to offer greater communication to the community at-large.

High School Cube has had a partnership with the District dating back to 2010, when the online broadcaster began showing the Proviso West Holiday Basketball Tournament. Upcoming games to be featured include Proviso East’s home game versus Hinsdale South High School at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, September 21 (click here to link to the game), Proviso West at Proviso East at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, September 28 (click here to link to the game), and Proviso West’s homecoming game versus York High School at 7:30 p.m. Friday, October 4 (click here to link to the game). The broadcast will be streamed live on the internet, iPhones, iPads and Droid devices with a replay and highlight clips available.

"We have many talented student-athletes at Proviso East, Proviso West, and PMSA, and we need to find ways of showing their talents in different venues and areas," Mr. Daniel said. "With High School Cube and their partnerships with other media such as the Chicago Sun-Times, we can accomplish this and broaden the scope in which we are delivering the good news about our district to the community."

Mr. Daniel added that plans are in the works for District 209 to communicate on other social media platforms. In addition, there is hope for the District’s partnership with High School Cube to other sports and activities in the future.

In addition, stakeholders can subscribe to the district’s weekly email newsletter. For more information, visit us online at
