We Love Schools

May 26, 2020

The truth is, administrators start planning for the next school year in January and February.  Here we are at the end of the 2019-2020 school year, a year stifled by COVID-19. 

And we are still in the dark on what the next school year can and will look like.

We certainly encourage school leaders to some time off to take a breath, but not too long.

In this episode, Carol and Joel cover four areas to focus on as you continue your school year planning.

1) What are the different scenarios schools are walking into for next year?  We cover three scenarios that are being discussed. 

2) Communicate your expectations and what you know. And it still may be "we don't know."  Keep over-communicating, but keep this over many social channels and accounts - Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.

3) Plan out your communication.  Expect it to be much different than in year's past.  And expect it change, so be nimble.

4) Financial conversation.  Ultimately, you will only survive this financial situation when you communicate what is going on to your stakeholders, your parents and community as a whole.

We Love Schools is a podcast produced by Joel Gagne & Carole Dorn-Bell that highlights and investigate success stories in school communications campaigns.

Through interviews with today’s educational and communication leaders address the issues, obstacles and best practices of communicating with your community in today's all-access social media-driven world.
