Formed in the 2017-18 school year, the Communications Committee meets on the last Thursday of each month when school is in session. The meeting is open to all Cheltenham Township residents. Committee leadership comprises two school board members and the directors of communication and technology. Additional members include superintendent, several school board directors and district digital content specialist. The meetings cover broad, recurring communications topics, in addition to providing an update for ongoing projects and campaigns. Presentations from these meetings will be posted below.
With co-chair Joel Fishbein presiding and board members Charles Burdell-Williams and Tyrone Scott, superintendent Dr. Wagner Marseille and members of the administration in attendance, the communications committee convened a virtual meeting on Thursday, May 28. The agenda included the monthly communications analytics, social media year-end review and Coronavirus-related media relations. Thanks to spring sports senior salutes and other senior- and staff-related campaigns, Facebook metrics were up in most categories. The year-in-review included a platform-by-platform look at successful campaigns and cumulative statistics. Coronavirus-related media relations included a few trend articles in the Inquirer, a story about the new teacher contracts on Inquirer.com and some television hits focused on senior events. The Communications Committee will reconvene in August.
