Future Ready Tools
Use the tools and learn the ins and outs of communications planning
A strong communications strategy is central to a successfully adopted, implemented, and sustained reform. And a strong communications effort is not dependent on a big budget and/or the ability to buy media. There are many communications and outreach activities that are low to no cost. More important to the effort is leadership, organization, outreach to key players, and consistency of message.
This section includes a range of tools to help you create a strong and measurable communications strategy that best meets your needs - and your budget. Combined with the other resources on this web site, these tools will help you ensure that all students in your state graduate “future ready” from high school, with the skills needed to succeed in college and careers.
