Core Communications Service

With a quarter-century of experience to draw upon, the Capital Region BOCES Communications team helps school leaders communicate in an open and timely manner about important news and information in public schools. We help school leaders build trust and credibility with their publics through a planned and strategic program of two-way communication aligned with district goals and priorities.

School officials know they can count on the BOCES Communications team to provide best practices in school communicationsfrom crisis communications to campaigns that help build informed consent for controversial budgets and bond issues.

Because each district is different, customized service packages are created to fit each districts communication needs and budget. Districts contract for one or more communications specialists who are based in their schools and who work closely with the district leadership team. Backing them up at BOCES is a creative and technical team of specialists in graphic design, social media, web development, video and printing.

All Tier 1-4 service contracts (Basic and Enhanced) come bundled with our School Communications Portfolio, library of "out-of-the-box" communication products, campaigns and message points designed to harness the power of a team in delivering greater value and efficiencies to all districts who purchase our core service. (See School Communications Portfolio for details.)

Tier 1-4 Enhanced contracts also include 150 Enhanced Specialty Hours which can be customized to fit each districts annual communication needs and priorities. (See Enhanced Specialty Hours  for details.)

Any district purchasing Tier 4 Enhanced Service may also purchase additional days of custom support on a discounted annual per day basis, in full-day and half-day increments.

Members of the Communication Service collaborate regularly on each districts behalf to provide a depth and breadth of service that no single district would be able to replicate on its own. Count on this service for:

  • Annual communications plans that align with district goals and priorities
