Indiana ASBO and several other educational associations are partners with the Indiana School Public Relations Association.  The following is information from Donna Petraits, Executive Director,  on an important project that INDSPRA has developed:


Dear INDSPRA Members and Partners,

We are excited to provide you with the first of three videos that we hope will reinforce the significance and necessity of our public schools, as well as build the trust necessary to get our children back in the classroom in the coming months. We are beginning work on the next two and hope to have them available to you within the next few weeks. Many hands have touched this video, but no one as much as Paul Weller from CIESC. We owe Paul many thanks and please read his advice below regarding posting it in your social media, newsletters, etc. We welcome your feedback. ENJOY!

You can watch and link to the video This is great for a website or newsletter where you can't link to a Facebook post. I believe we will reach the biggest audience by posting the video file and captions directly to Facebook. With the link you will see a download button. Select HD 1080p or Original to download the video. ALSO, select English CC and Spanish Latin to download the caption files. Including captions will greatly increase the reach. On Facebook, you need to include Create the title. Something that is clear and engaging and makes people want to watch. Fill out the full description of the video. This gives people a broader idea and the description is also a good place to put links to INDSPRA.

Add important education tags. Select the caption files with the corresponding language. Multiple language subtitles (closed captioning), will display in the language the Facebook user viewing the video has set as their preference. Make sure to share the message once it's up.
