The School Communications Portfolio brings together the best thinking of the BOCES Communications Service to provide participating school districts access to “ready-to-use” communications products, campaigns and message points about essential topics facing public schools today. Rather than duplicate valuable communication resources in every district, the Portfolio offers streamlined, strategic solutions for regional and statewide communications.
In addition to tackling complex and often controversial “hot-button” issues, the Portfolio provides streamlined solutions for routine communications such as annual notifications and special events. Carefully researched and professionally prepared, this vetted material may be used on district websites, social media channels and in print publications.
Also included in the Portfolio is Parent Today, a monthly e-newsletter for parents and educators backed by an information-rich blog. Parent Today provides parents and caregivers the tools and support they need to help their children succeed at school, and bridges the gap between families and the classroom to foster stronger connections and improved parent involvement. This award-winning, research-based product is designed to improve relationships with key stakeholder groups in every district.
Already included with the Core Communications Service, the Portfolio may also be purchased as a standalone service by non-client districts seeking to enrich or enhance their existing communications effort and effectiveness.
