Communication Tools for Recruitment

Currently, there are no examples for Elementary School.

Example

This MS has a strategic approach to recruitment that includes a promotional video, flyers, postcards mailed to homes, advertisement on district website, and social media.

Key Strengths

  • A multi-prong approach to student recruitment increases student interest in STEAM offerings.

Example

ExplorOcean (Now called Discovery Cube), a local non-profit, provides instruction in the classroom. Students work collaboratively on projects. Recently eighth grade students built solar powered model cars. Teachers also get the opportunity to work with STEM professionals.

Key Strengths

  • Partnership with a local non-profit can provide access to STEM professionals for both teachers and students.

Example

The school has a very active foundation and PTSA. The PTSA is focused on school to career preparation and hosts Career Panels during the year. The Career Panels are presented at night so that both parents and students may attend. Speakers include professionals from industry and the arts on a variety of practical and relatable subjects. The HS also hosts Career Chats at lunchtimes where industry professionals come to speak on careers, including speakers from the gaming industry, broadcasting, and the Navy.

Key Strengths

  • Tapping the expertise from working professionals in STEAM professions and including parents help articulate career pathways for students.
