Summertime is finally here! For many schools, the beginning of summer means the beginning of relaxation, vacation and not worrying about anything until school starts back in the fall. While this is certainly necessary to do, many school professionals would consider this season just as or even more hectic than during the school year. Many professionals from teachers, faculty members, specialized instructional support personnel, and education support professionals spend most of their summer planning ahead for fall. Many schools also have maintenance staff that works almost 10-hour days to make sure schools are still in great condition during summer school and when school opens back up for the new year. As a SchoolPointe partner, there are a plethora of ways that you can stay up-to-date with your administrative and maintenance tasks throughout the summer.
Social media marketing has proven to be an innovative way to grow a company or brand. Many schools have seen social media help improve their student body by increasing communication between the school and its community. The key to maintaining an effective social media plan is to stay consistent. To do this, you may want something that can send out alerts across all of your social media channels. With SendIt, you are able to do just that. We have made it easier to send out notifications through email, text and social media channels like Facebook and Twitter.
Communication is the key to forming longstanding relationships between you and your community. One way to increase communication is by updating your audience on a weekly or monthly basis. This can be done by creating newsletters for your school. Newsletters provide current changes or events happening in your school to better inform your community. SchoolPointe currently offers newsletter intergration for all of our websites and makes it easy to send out newsletters as frequently as possible. While sending newsletters can be simple, finding the inspiration for how exactly to structure your website can be the difficult task. Here are some ways you can find the perfect structure for your upcoming newsletters.
It is a common fact that many schools don’t know where they stand with their community. While word of mouth and social media can possibly help, many reviews may be beyond your control. By doing a quick Google search, you can see what people are saying about your district through Google reviews, Yelp or even Reddit. You can’t always control what is being said about your school, but you can create content that will give you a better chance of having more positive reviews. The following steps will help to promote positive reviews for your school from the parents and other influencers who matter.
