During this global pandemic, our education system is only as effective as the extent to which schools and districts can reach and engage families. That is especially true for low-income students with fewer resources and more stressors.

We know that many organizations are grappling with how to communicate most effectively during this time. That is why we commissioned a poll to understand parent’s experiences keeping up to date on their children’s education. Based on that survey, communications firm Be Clear created a suite of learnings, recommendations and templates that we are making available to everyone in school communications to download and use.

We hope these tools support your planning and boost effective outreach to parents:
