GOOD TO KNOW

PR Tips from NSPRA

Look for ways to create opportunities for constituents to meet students and teachers and learn more about your district. 

Take a student with you to attend a civic group luncheon meeting and give a short presenation on something happening in school. Ask a newspaper or TV reporter to speak to a class about his or her job. Invite an elected official to have lunch with a small group of students and teachers to discuss new programs, student achievement or academic rigor. 

Personal interaction is the most effective form of communication. Take advantage of the people in your district to tell its stories.

Every moment of every day in Texas public schools, real life engagement and profound learning occurs. This is something that our students and teachers know well. They celebrate these big and little moments as they happen.

As a community, we too, should be celebrating these moments. The Celebrate Texas Public Schools campaign is the perfect opportunity to do just this and more.

The Celebrate Texas Public Schools concept is not a new one. Originally created in 1950 by the Masonic Lodges of Texas to recognize contributions made by the state’s free system of education, the Texas School Public Relations Association (TSPRA) takes it to new heights.

Our schools provide a solid foundation with dedicated efforts by educators and support from parents and the community. We equip our students with the tools necessary to succeed.

NOW, more than ever, we need to make public statements about the great things happening in our Texas public schools.

Each student’s future success comes through a quality education today. By sharing the good news of Texas public education, we can ensure enhanced opportunities for future generations of Texans. After all, education is bigger here!
