The mission of the School Information Office is to provide accurate and timely information and news to the entire school district community, as well as to inform the community of students' and staff members' achievements.

The School Information Office is responsible for media relations as well as for the content and management of the district's website, producing the district's newsletter, The Hive (formerly The Beecon), content for the district's BEE Informed email news service, the district's official Facebook page, and the district's Twitter account.  

Excellent schools need exceptional communication between the district and all stakeholders. The Baldwinsville Central School District wants to be your first and most trused source of information about its schools and programs. One of our greatest assests is the atmosphere of caring, collaboration, and commitment that we have with district stakeholders. One way in which we maintain this environment is through our communications.

The Hive Newsletter (formerly The Beecon)
