Your school district has a story to tell.
Through great communication, you can make sure your stakeholders know about everything that’s going right in your school or district.
In Pennsylvania, public schools must actively compete for students. To do so, you need to project a positive image and garner the support of parents, staff, students, alumni and community members.
We help you expand your communications capacity by developing scalable strategies, training staff and providing support wherever you need it. We work closely with superintendents, administrators, principals and district communications specialists.
Are you looking for more effective ways to reach your stakeholders? Make the Donovan Group your school district communication partner. We proudly serve K-12 public schools and districts throughout Pennsylvania.
The Donovan Group has created a wide variety of free communication templates and protocols to help school districts navigate the challenges of COVID-19. You may access the resource here.
Here's how we can help.
We emphasize transparency and stakeholder engagement as we help you develop a robust communication plan for your school or district. This includes a cohesive, month-by-month strategy that details goals, target audiences, tactics and metrics to evaluate your efforts.
