Communication Preferences

How we communicate: 

We pride ourselves in maintaining open lines of communication with our Galion students, families and community. In order to do this, we are heavily dependent on the contact information provided to us by our families. We use Final Forms to gather phone numbers and emails addresses.  We encourage families to update the Contact Form within Final Forms as soon as possible when there are changes.

Galion City Schools now partners with Apptegy to provide a district app available in the app stores. From the app families can set notification preferences per builiding.

Using the app will be the quickest way to get information about everything Galion City Schools.
