Evolving K-12 Communications: Three-Year Analysis and Tips
Thursday September 6, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Presented by Julie A. Evans, Ed.D., CEO, Project Tomorrow
Sponsored by Blackboard
From sharing good news to managing information in a crisis, the day-to-day work of the district communications professional is often a good reflection of the pulse of their school district and community. Empowered by a variety of digital and social media tools, the roles and responsibilities of these PR pros are evolving to meet the dynamic needs of both their internal and external audiences.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow, shares the results of a new three-year analysis of the changing environment and expectations for communications in education using authentic feedback from over 720 district information directors nationwide collected via the annual Speak Up Research Project. Included in the discussion will be the new (and maybe surprising) demands of parents for school and district information as well. Watch for an exploration of evolving K-12 communications plus tips to use this year based on the latest research!
All K-12 school and district personnel involved with school-to-home as well as school-to-community communications management will benefit from watching this recorded edWebinar.
