Twitter chats set for school district, economic development agency

CHAMPAIGN — The Champaign County Economic Development Corp. and Champaign school district will kick off a new series of Twitter chats during the first week of August.

The chats will cover various topics relevant to the school district and Champaign County. The first two chats, scheduled for 4 to 5 p.m. Aug. 6 and 10 to 11 a.m. Aug. 7, will focus on all things back-to-school. They will also answer questions on topics such as enrollment, bus schedules, physical exams and forms, food service, the new school district website, and anything else participants would like to ask.

Stephanie Stuart, the school district's spokeswoman and community relations coordinator, and Carly McCrory, communications director for the Economic Development Corp., will both moderate the chat. Various representatives from the Champaign school district will be on hand to answer questions relevant to the topics listed above.

All community members are invited to participate in the chat. To participate, log in to Twitter and search for #AskUnit4. To be included in the chat, the hashtag must be included in your tweets (questions and answers).
