No one was ready for the ambush that was 2020, and schools found themselves having to navigate an ever-changing landscape on all fronts. The silver lining? Social media. That’s right: let’s celebrate how schools used social media for good in 2021.
In this panel discussion, “Engaging school communities through social media – Inside tips from communicators”, we were joined by Sabrina Thomas, Supervisor of Technology Services for Clay County District Schools in Florida, and Kevin Fenlon, Media Technology Instructor, social media, and PR advisor, and motivational soccer coach at High Point Regional high school in Sussex, NJ. They discussed new ways to approach your district’s social media strategy, best practices they established that have helped their district grow their social media presence and find success, what they learned from COVID-19, how to consistently generate good content that engages your audiences, and how to keep your school safe online.
