    • Achieving coordinated communications, both internally and externally, regarding safety, budget, crisis management and controversial issues.
    • Creating key messages and talking points about Erie Schools to establish “one clear voice” throughout all communications channels.
    • Establishing a clear brand identity for the district and building on that image and reputation.
    • Maintaining a proactive and transparent media relations program to enhance the district’s image locally, regionally, and throughout the Commonwealth.
