How do you make the perfect match with families who support and understand your school's mission?
This presentation will help you:
● Communicate your school's unique story, mission, and vision whether you are a new or established school.
● Evaluate recruitment methods and effective messaging for bringing in families.
● Determine which points and policies to include in a strong handbook.
● Give a school tour that accurately shows families who you are so they can determine if your school is a match for them.
● Feel confident knowing that the right people will find you and when they do, you will develop a warm, connected community of people sharing the same mission.
A certificate of completion for 1 hour is provided. Learn more about certificates here.
"This course was exceptional! The most helpful things were the very specific suggestions for organizing tours, setting the expectations with parents, the proactive steps and boundaries we can take/set to support children and staff, and the information about dealing with social media, etc. Jana's instruction is precise, based on real-world experience, and incredibly interesting." - Kathleen DiPietro
"This is a very good course and helpful in terms of providing useful tools for making your school tours an effective instrument to help new families decide whether or not your school is a good fit for them. And at the same time, it helps you decide whether a prospective family will be a good fit for your school." - Cinthia Drake
"I strongly recommend this course for Admins of schools. You may have different structures than the presenter, but she clearly shows how you can take what you do best and apply it to your school." - Debbie Long
