Press and Community Relations. What Every School Board Member Should Know Series, Vol. 4.
Designed to serve as a handy and useful reference for everyone in the education community, this handbook offers an overview of what a school public relations program should do and a general guide to constructing a program that has a good chance to succeed. It is intended to make evident the great need for everyone connected with the school to communicate with the public on a straightforward, thorough, and continuing basis. The guidelines and ideas contained are offered as suggestions rather than as hard and fast rules. Chapters discuss the need for public schools to communicate, the foundation of a public relations program, the design of the program, who should communicate, the media, the production of publications, budget elections and bond referendums, the board meeting's place in the public relations program, criticism and crises, and evaluation and feedback. Numerous appendixes contain suggestions from other sources. A bibliography is included. (Author/IRT)
