Your school’s financial aid program is a powerful tool to help you attract new, mission-appropriate families and assess the amount of tuition they can pay.
This webinar will help your school remove the stigma from your financial aid program, using indexed tuition to encourage more applicants and fill empty seats. By reframing your financial aid message to refer to a family's ability to pay rather than the school's discount award, rather than the school’s discount award, you strengthen your school’s position and long-term viability.
If you’ve been struggling to find a balance between supporting your faculty as they face the ongoing challenges of the past year, holding them accountable for performance, and pushing them to grow, you’re not alone.
Especially this year, as teachers and leaders add managing hybrid and distance learning to an already full schedule, you need an effective faculty growth and support plan. This webinar will walk you through ISM’s teacher-approved framework for growth and evaluation that supports teachers in their growth while providing a clear set of expectations they can count on—whether they’re teaching in person, at a distance, or some combination of the two.
A strategic Board Development Committee starts with a pragmatic calendar of events. Only when this committee remains focused on the right activities at the right time can it support a school’s fundraising initiatives.
This webinar covers creating a yearly plan for your Board’s Development Committee that includes well-designed meeting agendas and a strategic approach to fulfilling the committee’s goals. With the right annual agenda, your committee members can act strategically and creatively for the benefit of your school, your development programs, and, especially, your students.
Your school’s “brand” is the total of all the experiences families have at your school. Therefore, a culture of customer service is a must. But mentioning a customer-service-oriented culture should not produce sneers and hisses among your faculty and staff.
This webinar will help you and your team realize all the benefits you will share when you care for today’s private school families in a highly predictable and supportive manner.
Explore the schoolwide benefit of engaging parents like they are VIPs, while systematically redirecting your VIP “monsters.” Walk away with actionable strategies for establishing and supporting a customer service culture at your school.
Many senior administrators in private-independent schools associate “risk management” with insurance coverage, and therefore rely on the school’s insurance agents and business manager to take care of it.
But there’s more to risk management than insurance. In this day and age, with abundant threats and unlimited accountability, school leaders must learn and know more about risk management than ever before. In this webinar, we’ll cover what Division Heads need to know and how you can protect yourself and your school.
Building and sustaining relationships with your alumni is vital to your school’s future. Often, you’ll rely on volunteers to help build these relationships and carry out activities to draw alumni in.
Discover how to create an effective organizational structure for your alumni volunteers that serve both their needs and the strategic goals of the school. This will enable you to build a nimble and reliable avenue through which that relationship can be nurtured and thrive.
If you want to boost your school’s word-of-mouth marketing efforts through social media, look no further than user-generated content (UGC). UGC is any content that’s created by others— your faculty, students, parents, or alumni.
Learn how including UGC in your social media strategy can boost your credibility and brand reach, particularly among Millennial parents and Gen Z students. This webinar will provide easy-to-implement UGC strategies and tactics you can use to ncrease engagement among your followers and bolster your content library.
