“We are a communications business with its heart in education.”
—David R. Voss, President
As an educator, you want higher student achievement.
As a leader, you want a parade behind your cause.
As an executive, you want greater personal performance.
Everyone wants to be heard. Educators want to be heard.
At Voss & Associates, we understand the connection between communication and your bottom line, whether it’s gaining public support, inspiring family involvement or enjoying a standing ovation.
Communications is a critical part of management for any large organization. Your school district must communicate effectively, both internally and externally. With an independent audit we can assess how you are communicating and then make recommendations for improvement. Results will help you improve communication to families, learn how to use social media, and how to communicate during crisis situations so citizens have immediate access to information. The bottom line is that you need parent and community support to improve your schools, and you need your own people to understand and effectively implement change. Neither of these can happen without effective communication so we see this as a valuable tool directly tied to increasing student achievement.
COMMUNICATING THE BUSINESS OF EDUCATION
As the premier marketing and public relations consultants in the fields of education and causes that benefit children, we offer affordable communication strategies, including full video and audio production, that allow you to cut through the noise – and be heard, whether you’re working with, or within the education industry. We have decades of experience, a proven track record, and the kind of contact that can help you get things accomplished when you need them done, including complete crisis communication plans.
Voss & Associates will translate your personal passion to a finely tuned message. We’ll create a plan and make sure everyone on your team knows it inside and out. We then produce the artwork, the photography, the writing, the multi-media presentation, webpage or the video to give it life. We custom-tailor your communications needs and provide results back to you, so you can focus on the management of your organization. With Voss & Associates as your partner, you can rest assured the right messages are reaching the right audiences, every time.
Lee County Public Schools Holds Community Engagement Meetings
This highlight reel consists of a series of events that were organized, developed and facilitated by Voss & Associates, throughout Lee County, FL in an effort to truly reach out to community members in the area as part of the District’s Strategic Plan. We designed the engagement questions, helped facilitate the groups and reported our summary to the School Board. The public forums were widely publicized through traditional promotion and media methods, including social media. If they could not attend one of the (8) events, they could go to the District’s website and take the survey online! The campaign was called, Your Voice. Your Schools. Our Future.
