Resources for Communicating the Transition to In-Person Learning

More than 70% of U.S. students today are learning in a hybrid or fully remote setting, according to two national surveys of parents and of district and school leaders conducted in fall 2020. While some of those students may never return to physical classrooms, public education itself will eventually return to school buildings in most communities.

For a successful rollout of in-person learning, school public relations professionals should plan now for communications that will maintain families’ and employees’ trust in the safety of their schools.

NSPRA has curated resources for association members in the following areas to aid in the development of strategic communication plans and the identification of strategies and tactics for a return to in-person learning: 

  • Communication plans and campaigns
  • Dashboards
  • Fact sheets and infographics
  • Handbooks
  • Notifications to families and staff
  • Social media
  • Videos
