Some items on the school administrators' to-do list have changed over the years, but there's still one constant at the top of the list--communication. School administrators who are strong communicators tend to earn the trust of their school communities and enjoy more positive feedback from their stakeholders. The advent of technological resources--such as Twitter, blogs, Facebook, YouTube, and a variety of Google tools--has made it easier to get the word out, as well as to collect important feedback from parents, teachers, and students. The author urges school leaders to create a school blog and use Google tools, such as Google Voice, Google Docs, and Google Hangouts, to engage their communities in a lively and ongoing exchange of ideas.
