Communications staff work with districts and ESD staff to find and implement strategies that broaden local communities’ understanding of all educators do throughout schools, in our community and around the state.

Communications staff members are available to assist districts to:

  • Develop communications plans that can be comprehensive and large-scale, or topic-specific.
  • Evaluate and improve current communications strategies.
  • Write and distribute press releases to local media and organization channels.
  • Write, design, edit, and/or advise on district publications.
  • Cultivate and maintain relationships with local media outlets and individual reporters.
  • Develop, manage and/or monitor social media forums and other district communications channels.
  • Take photographs and video.
  • Develop plans that support district efforts to pursue bonds.
  • Train and support school staff on effective use of communications tools and resources.

Douglas ESD communications services are also available to nonprofit and government agencies through intergovernmental contracts. Through these contracts, we are able to grow and expand this department to better serve our school districts.
