Communications

About

The NWESD Communications Department provides numerous resources for Public Information Officers, and other district staff responsible for communications within their district.

New School Funding Toolkit

Four major factors have caused inequities among districts and overall reductions statewide for funding schools:

  1. New limitations to local levies
  2. Cuts to Local Effort Assistance (LEA)
  3. Less money for long-serving teachers
  4. Regionalization calculations

Email Marketing

Email marketing can be one of the most cost-effective methods for communicating with your families, students, community, and staff. The NWESD Email Marketing system gives you the ability to send stylish, professional emails easily, and manage all your contacts in one place.

Graphics

A strong message often begins with the presentation. The NWESD can offer professional graphic design services at a much lower rate than using a freelance designer and can provide consulting services to assist in providing maximum impact for your marketing efforts.

Printed Media

Does your district print calendars, postcards or newsletters? The NWESD is a great place to outsource this work. Save your staff the frustration and let us coordinate with the printers on your behalf. Most of our printed materials can be done “in-house”, with big savings for your budget.

Publications

The NWESD publishes a quarterly publication called the Education Connection for professional development opportunities; which is also available in a handy online magazine format. If you want to be notified when a new publication is released, signup for updates

Social Media

Your students are using it, your families are using it – the schools should be using it! Don’t know where to begin? We can help! If you have already waded into the Social Media community, “like” us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube to get updates on NWESD happenings.

Websites

The NWESD can provide advice on utilizing Open Source applications to build strong websites and social networking environments for collaborative work.
