Department of Communications
Welcome! We are pleased to serve the communication needs of the district by facilitating an open exchange of information between the school district and our students, parents, staff, media, and community partners. Our team creates and manages a wide variety of district-related programs and activities including:
Helpful Communications Tools
Paperless Forms – As we move toward an office environment in which the use and storage of paper will be nearly obsolete, the district has begun creating digital, paperless forms. The Versiform system will be available via a link located on the left side of this page. The Versiform system contacts all parties required for the processing of a form and follows up with reminders and status (approval/disapproval) notifications and remarks. A number of frequently used in-house forms are available already, and more will be added as work progresses on this fantastic new addition to our operations.
School Messenger – Telephone outreach to our students, families and staff will now take place via the School Messenger call system. This “auto-call’ messaging utility replaces the former ParentLink system and works much the same way but with greater efficiency and ease of use. Designated school-based system admins will find a School Messenger link button on the left side of this page.
District Application (App) for Mobile Devices – Download the new Paterson Public Schools application for mobile devices! If you have used our highly-successful mobile app in the past, we have created a new and improved version that is available at the Google Play Store (for Android devices) and the App Store and ITunes (for Apple devices) shortly. Please note that you must delete the old application from your devices before downloading the new.
These logos are optimized for printing at 4 inches long. This is the recommended size for standard size paper reproduction. They should not be enlarged. They may be made smaller by shift-clicking on any corner and dragging inward. If a larger version is desired for posters, billboards, etc. please contact the Department of Communications.
Use the opaque versions when the document background is dark or has a distracting pattern that may interfere with legibility.
PLEASE NOTE: Access to these graphics requires a Paterson Public Schools login and password.

District Letterhead and Flyer Templates
PLEASE NOTE: Access to these templates requires a Paterson Public Schools login and password.
It is highly recommended that all word documents intended for electronic transmission (via e-mail) should be converted to pdf files using the 'save as' command. This will protect the contents from being altered.
Please note that this letterhead is a word template. The district logo header and footer will appear grayed-out on your computer monitor. The document colors will appear correctly either when it is printed or when converted to a pdf file.
Please make sure to replace the temporary text with you school or department name, address and phone numbers in addition to adding your own name and title.
