If your family is like mine, you probably have typical jobs around the house. I’m talking about the chores that have to get done or you’ll end up with nothing to wear or eat.
How you divide duties may be based on what you like to do. My husband Bill loves to grill, so I know not to mess with it.
You may be good at something—or at least better than your spouse or child—so you take that one on. I am fussy about folding and hanging clothes right out of the dryer, so I typically do laundry.
That leaves the chores that NO ONE wants to do.
In our family, that’s cleaning the bathrooms and grocery shopping.
I’m betting within your school, you all have job responsibilities too. I know for a fact that you all take on jobs that aren’t in the job description—like cleaning up after sick little Suzy or talking to concerned parents well after your typical day should have ended.
One job that many people seem to be afraid to take on is social media. Yikes—what if someone starts bashing an employee on Facebook? What if there is a child pictured who didn’t have parental consent? How can I possibly learn Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube?
It is a challenge that many districts have faced over the past few years, but despite the challenge, they have come up with some unique approaches.
Some have their superintendents and principals take the lead. Others have a support staff member take responsibility for the posts. Yet others have students become social media interns, learning the importance of getting timely information out to the community.
There is a new option that surfaced about a year ago, which outsources the social media efforts to our company—#SocialSchool4EDU. Thus far, we have worked with eight schools on social media management and have done seminars and training for administrators and staff in over 30 schools. We will ensure your story is told throughout your community and the world with over 20 posts on Facebook and Twitter every week during the school year.
Crazy thing is, our account managers are not located at a desk inside your school. We may not even live in the same state. So how can we truly be in touch with the stories happening inside your school?
We have a proven system. We take time to train your staff and students. We also put in the safety precautions to ensure your student’s privacy is respected.
This affordable option is not only working but thriving for the eight districts we work with right now. Here is what one of our clients had to say:
If your district is still waiting to jump into social media, call us today. Summer is a perfect time to get started. The size of the district doesn’t matter. We have experience with all sizes.
The location of your school doesn’t matter either! The wonderful technology we work with can allow us to be just as effective for schools in Alaska, New York, or Texas.
Don’t let your community starve because no one would go grocery shopping! That job you hate or are scared of is one that we LOVE!
You have great things going on and the students deserve to be recognized. Our mission is simple – Celebrate Students and Connect Communities. We can’t wait to help yours.
