CASE Communications Clearinghouse
Share |

As a public education leader, communicating with parents, stakeholders, staff and students is an ongoing and critical part of your role. Whether it’s a monthly newsletter updating parents on school news and events, a social media post highlighting a district initiative or student accomplishment, or a response to a crisis situation, it’s important that you have the tools and resources you need to deliver your message clearly and effectively.

Here, you'll find sample communications for a wide variety of topics, in addition to links to outside organizations for relevant reports, helpful tips and best practices. If you have communications that you have used in your own school or district that you would be open to sharing on this webpage, please email Director of Communications Melissa Gibson at mgibson@co-case.org. Finally, don't hesitate to contact CASE if we can offer any additional help with your communications planning, be it in general, or in response to a specific crisis or challenging situation.
