In the project, the candidate will the create a comprehensive Communications / Public Relations Plan for a new school or initiative in the district (such as a Newcomers school or project with a community center such as the High Point Center for Children and Families), which serves a multitude of students at various learning levels and from various socioeconomic statuses.  The Plan should address everything form the opening of school to the closing of school.  The Plan should provide evidence of the following:

  • Collaboration from the planning and implementation stages, along with evidence of consistent collaboration during times of future sustainability.
  • Data-based strategies for creating and maintaining collaborative cultures.
  • An implementation and monitoring plan for current and future improvements made regarding school culture.
  • A statement of purpose and action steps to ensure access, engagement, and success for culturally diverse students, faculty, and staff.
  • Processes and procedures which build consensus, communicate, and resolve conflict in a fair and democratic way, while at the same time demonstrate awareness of potential problems and areas of conflict within the school and district, that may impact stakeholders and overall student performance/achievement.
  • A parent and community involvement/outreach plan that strongly identifies and showcases the building of relationships with individuals and groups to support the district’s learning and teaching agenda.
  • Collaborative work with others to develop relationships and partnerships with the community/school board, state, and district groups that further the district’s goals of positive culture and increased student performance.

Directions and Candidate Requirements
Great news!  Your district is opening a Newcomers school!  This school will be for students who are new to your district, the United States, and the English language.  The school will serve students from a variety of cultures and socioeconomic status.  Students will be able to attend the school for up to one year at which time they will move to the appropriate school within the district.

Since this is a new school, it needs everything.  One of the things that it needs is a comprehensive Communications / Public Relations Plan.  You have been given the assignment to develop this plan keeping in mind the mission of the school and the district, the students, parents and larger community served by the school, and the need of the school and the district to build relationships.  As you develop the plan, be sure to provide evidence of the following:

  • Collaboration from the planning and implementation stages, along with evidence of consistent collaboration during times of future sustainability.
  • Data-based strategies for creating and maintaining collaborative cultures.
  • An implementation and monitoring plan for current and future improvements made regarding school culture.
  • A statement of purpose and action steps to ensure access, engagement, and success for culturally diverse students, faculty, and staff.
  • Processes and procedures which build consensus, communicate, and resolve conflict in a fair and democratic way, while at the same time demonstrate awareness of potential problems and areas of conflict within the school and district, that may impact stakeholders and overall student performance/achievement.
  • A parent and community involvement/outreach plan that strongly identifies and showcases the building of relationships with individuals and groups to support the district’s learning and teaching agenda.
  • Collaborative work with others to develop relationships and partnerships with the community/school board, state, and district groups that further the district’s goals of positive culture and increased student performance.

Evaluation
The rubric for assessment of Electronic Evidence #2 (Building Collaborative Relationships) appears below and will be used by the two faculty members assigned to teaching EDU 7273 Intercultural Communication Skills for Contemporary School Leaders and EDU 7272 Community and Public Relations.  These two courses are offered as co-requisite requirements and will include Evidence #2 as a co-assignment spanning both courses.  This evidence will constitute 25% of the final grade in each of the two courses.  Candidates will be instructed to upload their final Electronic Evidence #2 to Foliotek.
