Innovative and Esteemed Communications
Diversity Makes Springdale Stronger!
Springdale is home to over 50 nationalities with up to 41 spoken languages! Demographics of our student body is over 45% Hispanic and 15% Marshallese. The ESL Communications division of the department leads the effort to maintain a transparent and inclusive information resource for as many Springdale students and families as possible. Important information on the web is translated to Spanish in parity, informational fliers and posters are translated to our three major languages, and exclusive video content for Spanish-speaking and Marshallese-speaking families are created regularly by the ESL Communications team. Outreach to ESL families is coordinated through community partnerships, direct communications, and Springdale Schools' alternate language social media pages.
In partnership with the ESL Department, the Communications Department is pleased to grow into better serving all of our community. All Means All.
Partnerships are the cornerstone of our effort to provide students with opportunities and resources.
The Springdale Schools Communications Department is proud to partner with the most influential local organizations in film, broadcast, and business. Springdale students are welcome to participate in many of these community partnerships, whether it be learning hands-on as staff of community broadcast events or working with industry professionals creating high-level media content for public outreach efforts.
Film students of Springdale Schools have had the unparalleled distinction of operating as media staff for the two premiere Arkansas film festivals.

Live Athletics & Fine Art
Having fun with hands-on learning and providing a service for the community
With support, training, and oversight from the Communications Department, each schools' staff have the option to get involved in livestreaming school events! Parents, students, and community members have instant and free access to many major Springdale athletic and fine arts events. These livestream broadcasts are available on televisions, computers, and phones and can be viewed live from anywhere in the world!
The Communications Department also provides equipment and training to school staff that wish to record or livestream choir and band performances. They may also use the recordings to fundraise with DVD home video copies of these performances. This money goes back to music programs and help bring higher quality creative education to the children of Springdale.
Springdale students gain hands-on experience producing many live events as camera operators, live directors, commentators, and more. Livestreams of sporting events are a regular fixture of our High School programs, but Junior High and even Middle School programs have been involved in broadcasting the events of their schools.
