Your school 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 division.
In Virginia, 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 communications specialists.
Are you looking for more effective ways to reach your stakeholders? Make the Donovan Group your school communication partner. We proudly serve K-12 public schools throughout Virginia.
The Donovan Group has created a wide variety of free communication templates and protocols to help schools 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.

Media Relations & Training
We give you the training to master the art of the media interview, allowing you to handle reporters’ calls, give great on-camera interviews and position yourself as a trusted source of accurate information. Our team has fielded thousands of calls from education reporters.
A communication audit allows your district to determine what is going well in its communication efforts, and where improvements can be made. This often involves an inventory of practices and a staff/community survey.
Get professional and engaging videos that reach your key stakeholders through social media and a variety of other channels. We’ll plan, shoot, edit and produce videos featuring your schools, students and staff.
