SEVEN ARTICLES2AbstractThe public relations role of school leaders is to provide relationships among the public and school district. There are unique ways that each district has when it comes to carrying out the role, however, the most common element is planned. To bring the best out of the role its mission is to support the community and its staff. It is a well-thought-out plan that helps to ensure that goals are met and supported throughout the school district. There are four processes when it comes to public relations and they are: research, communicate/implement, action plan, and evaluate. It is important to keep all four of these processes in mind when developing a public relations plan throughout the school district. The superintendent and school board discuss their priorities and objectives that will help achieve the goals they are on the mission to achieve. Facilitating district goals whether them being short-term or long-term is an objective that is timed and measured. However, for the plan to be successful it must be decided what they want the program to accomplish. There are many questions that must be answered before the plan can be created.
SEVEN ARTICLES3The article explains why it is important to have a public relations (PR) person in the school. Public relations are a critical aspect in our school system because it allows someone to bethe school communicator. The strength within this article explains why it is good to have a PR that represents your school because of parents and community members. It is a louder voice that people listen to. A good PR is someone that influences and builds confidence within the school district. Leedy (2016) states, “our communities, parents, staff, students, even taxpayers and retirees without children attending your school, want to be part of something fine.” You want all the support you can get. This article focuses on communication that the PR does through different social media sites as well as going out to community meetings and expressing the goals the school district is planning. The positive thing about the PR is that you can get instant answersin school meetings instead of waiting on an answer. Staff meetings provide success within the school especially if you can get your question answered immediately. The strength within this article explains when it is a good time to implement the school PR. It provides step-by-step what the mission is for the PR and the overall goal. I did not see any weakness within this article because it explained in detail the responsibilities that the PR would obtain. Enjoying an effective PR in your school allows for great accomplishments each day and the momentum will grow.
