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 Jennifer Lowman presiding, the Communications Committee convened via video conferencing for its final meeting of the academic year on Thursday, May 27. The agenda included a spring social media check in, superintendent search communications and a dashboard update. Director of Communications Kevin Kaufman reviewed campaigns and popular posts he and digital content specialist Dana Walker created within the past six months on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Kaufman reviewed the communications for the superintendent search, which included a dedicated web page, numerous social media posts and letters to the community about surveys and public forums. Finally, Kaufman unveiled a mock up of the district data dashboard project. Communications and Technology will work together in the coming months to bring the preliminary mock up to fruition. The Communications Committee will meet next on Thursday, September 23.
