Using Video to (Re)build Trust with Captivate Media and Rise Vision

Each day our students, families, educators and community members are inundated with messages meant to highlight our differences, build mistrust and to divide us. We experience the impact of these divisions in our board meetings, enrollment numbers, community events and in our day-to-day lives. With trust between school districts and the communities they serve strained more than ever, employing traditional communication tactics may not reach people in the ways you need.

What You'll Learn

In this session, we will:

  • Share strategies to help you reverse this growing divide and rebuild a stronger community.
  • Teach you how to reach the hearts and minds of community members, not just during “enrollment season”, but ongoing throughout the year.
  • Teach you techniques you can use to share stories and celebrate your students and staff. These strategies can serve as the foundation to help you, not only restore trust, but grow your student enrollment and staffing.
