NSPRA Power Hour: Harnessing Technology to Communicate with Diverse Audiences

Administered by ESD 123


In districts serving diverse cultural and language groups, standard communication channels are not always effective for engaging all families. Immigrants may not read in their native languages; some ethnic groups rely on word-of-mouth networks; some lack trust in the school system; families in poverty may not have access to the internet at home. Learn how one school district harnessed the power of technology for sophisticated, innovative, two-way communication to reach all families and the community as a whole. Find out how you can use mobile apps, e-flyers, redesigned newsletters, different engagement platforms, and the human touch to increase overall community involvement and student success.

Panelists: Susan Enfield, Ed.D., superintendent, and Catherine Carbone Rogers, chief communications officer, Highline Public Schools, Burien, Wash.
