INSPRA Experts

"INSPRA Experts" is a list of professionals in the school communications field who are willing to share their experiences and knowledge with INSPRA partner organizations including state education associations and other NSPRA chapters. 

Partner organizations are encouraged to access this list anytime they need a presenter on a specific school communications topic for a meeting or conference. In addition, school districts without an on-staff communications professional are able to request limited communications counseling from a subject-area expert.  

INSPRA Expert Request Form: https://goo.gl/forms/IMcY7ILW7p6g8WzH3



To schedule one of the presentations listed below for your organization's event, please complete the INSPRA Expert Request Form and include the title of the presentation where requested. 


Dustproofing Your Strategic Plan

School districts spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours developing strategic plans. Even with every good intention to address the community’s and employee’s desires through such a plan, all too often these documents end up collecting dust on a bookshelf. Learn how one district earned state and national Golden Achievement Awards by taking its complicated, detailed, and technical strategic plan and branding it so it became embedded into the culture and language of the district. Through simplified documents, social media efforts, “goal champions,” and Board meeting restructuring, lean how this district maximized stakeholders’ awareness of this strategic plan.


Recognizing the Heart of Your District

A supportive educational environment is one of five essential indicators that affect and predict school success. Although hosting a single employee recognition event may bring about good feelings short-term, it most likely will not affect the overall positive culture of the district. Real change requires an authentic evaluation of what is truly meaningful to employees, and district leaders dedicated to the effort. By focusing on the values of being present, celebrating the small things, and modeling gratitude, learn how one district earned state and national Golden Achievement Awards by developing a comprehensive, multi-tiered, yearlong approach to employee engagement.
