We Love Schools host Joel Gagne speaks with Dan Parent, superintendent of Danbury Local Schools, about how to market a school in a small district. Danbury Local Schools is in northwest Ohio with roughly 500 students, and the two discuss the district’s rebranding efforts to share the message that Danbury Local Schools is the “best kept secret in northwest Ohio.”
Joel also chats with Amanda Morris about the Allerton Hill strategy that went into the Danbury Local Schools rebranding efforts.
In this week’s podcast episode of We Love Schools, Carole Dorn-Bell speaks with Bill Wade, Superintendent of Kirtland Local Schools. The two discuss professional development in small and rural schools and the challenges that small school systems face when it comes to professional development.
Wade has come up with unique ways to lead professional development in small and rural schools by narrowing the focus on their professional development programs.
In this episode of We Love Schools, Carole Dorn-Bell welcomes back Kirk Koennecke. Koennecke is the executive director of the Ohio Small & Rural Collaborative (OSRC) as well as the superintendent of Graham Local Schools in Ohio.
We Love Schools is excited to work with OSRC on a new podcast partnership.
“We’re excited to work with Allerton Hill and We Love Schools on the podcast,” Koennecke says. “Podcasts make sense for our members as educators across the state want to learn while they’re own on the go.”
