District Communications

QPS District Communications

At Quincy Public Schools, we are committed to transparent, effective, and accessible communication with our students, parents, staff, and the broader community.

We believe that a well-informed and engaged community plays an important role in the success of our students. We use a variety of communication channels to provide accurate, timely, and accessible information to our stakeholders.

We value your input and engagement. Our district actively seeks feedback and offers opportunities for involvement through:

  • Parent/Guardian Organizations: Join your school’s PTO/PAC to connect with other parents and become involved in building community through supporting the school at events and celebrations. District-wide parent organizations include the Quincy Citywide Parent Council, the English Learner Parent Advisory Council (ELPAC), and the Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC).

  • Quincy School Committee Meetings: Quincy School Committee meetings are held in the School Committee Room at the Coddington Building and are open to the public. (The meeting schedule can be found here.) The meetings are also broadcast live on Xfinity Comcast Channel 22 and livestreamed at qatv.org. Meeting videos are posted on the QPS YouTube channel. Parents and community members are welcome to address School Committee through the Open Forum held at each meeting or via email at [email protected].

  • Volunteers: Schools utilize volunteers in a variety of ways including chaperoning field trips and assisting in school libraries. Please check with your student’s school for volunteer opportunities. (All volunteers must complete CORI and SAFIS background checks.)
