Social media is a critical component that schools can use to build and nurture relationships with parents, grandparents and the larger community. Hear how one school's educators have leveraged social media to build loyalty with their constituents and actively engage parents in the conversation.
Susan Bearden, information technology director from Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, encourages educators and administrators not only to use social media, but also to manage it themselves so they can build strong relationships with parents, teachers and media outlets in the community. Learn how Catherine Koos and other teachers manage their Facebook pages on a daily basis, and how a school and an alumni Facebook page help promote a school's activities and news.
