Phi Delta Kappa says schools with high confidence ratings: •have clear goals, and they communicate these goals clearly within the school and to the community •have high quality curriculum and extracurricular programs - they are seen to have “extras” over and above what the “average” school offers •are safe and orderly •have significant parent and community involvement •exhibit openness, warmth and caring •systematically do “need sensing” to find out what parents and others in the community want from schools •work hard at building and retaining public confidence

Hierarchy of Effective Communications 1. One-to-one, face-to-face 2. Small group discussion/meeting 3. Speaking before a large group 4. Phone conversation 5. Handwritten, personal note 6. Typewritten, personal letter not generated by computer 7. Computer generated or word-processing-generated “personal letter” 8. Mass-produced, non-personal letter 9. Brochure or pamphlet sent out as a “direct mail” piece 10. Article in organizational newsletter, magazine, tabloid 11. News carried in popular press 12.

What is the voice of your school?

Sign of the times Catering for elegant social events

Sign of the times Our specialty—do-it-yourself roast a whole pig parties!!

Think about your school • Do you have a “fall in the salad” person?

There is no inside/outside voice “our results are great!” and “this is the end of the world as we know it” cannot co-exist !

The voice checklist • Do you speak with one clear voice? • Do you have the information you need to tell the story? • Is the one clear voice cranky? Negative? Hostile? • What could help?

Your Attitude Communicated three ways: • 7% by words • 38% by tone of voice • 55% in non-verbal ways Silent Messages, Dr. Albert Mehrabian D o yo u h a ve th e m a t h e llo ?

An Attitude Example Service person asks guest if help needed. Guest shows interest in employee. Hotel employee asks if help needed and offers suggestions. Offers gift to hotel employee. How could that not be good? D o yo u h a ve th e m a t h e llo ?

Your reputation will self- destruct in 5 seconds... Get the first five seconds right—our genes train us to distinguish between safe opportunities and dangerous situations—these sensing devices are at full stretch when customers move toward a potential service encounter. The Buzz, David Freemantle

A Michigan study of the relationship between student test scores and a variety of forces affecting student success found one facter that stood out as “The most frequently recurring theme of high-scoring districts.” What was it? Intensive involvement of parents in their children’s schooling.

Research is clear that the vast majority of parents want to help their child be successful in school. What are the three key reasons they say they do not? 1. No time 2. Don’t know what to do 3. Language
