Motivate & Inspire System Transformation Through the Power of Storytelling

Whether your school district is just beginning the Portrait of a Graduate process, prepping to launch it to your various stakeholders, or looking to build momentum around the Portrait to practice, communications with internal and external audiences is a critical element to bring the vision to life. More importantly, storytelling should be central to your communications work in system transformation as it can be effective to teach, inspire, influence, and transform.

School system leaders who have worked with Battelle for Kids consistently identify communications as a critical area of focus in system transformation. It is essential to raise awareness of your district’s locally developed vision—the Portrait of a Graduate—and bring it to life within your buildings and in your community.

Our experienced Marketing & Communications (MarCom) team can help with this work. We work exclusively with districts that are partnered with Battelle for Kids. Our team can provide support to existing district communication leads/staff or provide more comprehensive project-based services to those districts without full-time or part-time communications staffing.
