School Communications Services


Traditional Media:


Print Newsletters
Print newsletters remain a valuable tool for reaching certain segments of your audience and are the only way to ensure that the district is reaching every household in the community including those of non-parents. Districts generally use printed newsletters for disseminating school budget information. Click here for a sample of a printed newsletter.

Districts that keep community members informed about accomplishments and challenges are more likely to build consensus among voters who ultimately must support district programs and budgets. A school communications specialist can be assigned to work out of a district, if desired. This arrangement gives districts the best of both worlds: an onsite resource to handle school communications, and the financial benefits and flexibility of a shared service.

Classic Video
The fact that 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute is testament to the power of video storytelling. With PNW BOCES’ Video Production Service, school districts can harness that power without ever stepping inside a studio or behind a camera. In addition to the web-based videos described elsewhere, the School Communications Service offers live event videography, professionally produced programs on topics in education and Spotlight type videos that allow administrators to speak directly to the school community. Live streaming is also available. Click here to see a sample video.

Print Materials
For communities that prefer printed calendars, the School Communications Service offers branded two and four-color printed calendars with original photography on glossy or matt paper. Other print materials include posters, palm cards, programs and invitations. Click here to see a sample calendar.

Web Design & Management
A school district’s website serves as the district’s public face, and should be the best source of comprehensive information about everything from school events to district policies. Working with a number of vendors, the School Communications Service offers districts custom-designed and maintained websites that are lively, user-friendly and attractive at prices districts can afford.
