About this product
- DescriptionSchneider and Hollenczer approach the topic of managing communications from a strategic perspective. Moving from a one-way, top-down approach to communication, the authors show how headteachers can manage communications much more strategically by using a fluid communication strategy that involves all of the school's stakeholders - teachers, support staff, students, parents, central office administrators and community members. Schools are much more transparent institutions today because of access to data, and headteachers need a more open communication style as a result. Strong communication management skills between principals and the school's stakeholders can lead to more success in achieving the objectives for their schools. This book explains how different communication frameworks can be used in different situations and also covers school-family-communication partnerships, techlogy and communication, and communication tools.
