Communication and Engagement

You know communicating with internal and external stakeholders is important—but where do you begin and what messages matter most?

School system leaders consistently identify communications as a critical area of focus. This applies when engaging with staff and students as well as parents, families, community, and business.

BFKStakeholderEngagementFrameworkIt’s no mystery that effective communication is essential to educational success, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Whether you’re preparing to launch a new large-scale initiative, building a campaign to attract and retain students and staff, or engaging your community in developing and implementing their Portrait of a Graduate, it’s important to make sure your approach meets your audience where they are.

Our marketing, communications, and design professionals live and breathe education. We bring that focus to the table as we help education leaders with:

  • Communications planning and strategic counsel
  • Branding and graphic design
  • Employee and community engagement 
  • Staff and student recruitment
  • Communications and marketing capacity-building and implementation support

Battelle for Kids helps school systems engage in a discovery process that begins with the end in mind. Together, we’ll identify objectives and success measures that inform the development of an integrated communications and change leadership strategy.
