Developing a District Communication Plan

Effective communications are critical to school districts. Social media has become an essential tool for outreach to the community.  Gone are the days of traditional press releases and expecting reporters to attend every school board meeting and important event.  Times and resources have changed and it is critical for school district leaders to proactively reach out to parents, business and community leaders to ensure stakeholders know the good work being done in local schools and to build long term support for each district. This presentation will focus on how to reach your entire school community and connect with all stakeholders, as well as, help your administrators and teachers align their communication with a consistent focus.
