A contemporary and practice-based school public relations text that centers on the importance of communication, relationships, and technology.
Outfitting students with a wealth of practical, practice-based knowledge that they can take directly into the halls of their school, the new fifth edition of Public Relations in Schools has a fresh, contemporary focus on both how administrators can effectively communicate with the community and how building strong relationships with stakeholders can ultimately lead to overall school improvement. Through a blend of theoretical and tacit knowledge, this text offers students an in-depth guide to 1) how to successfully communicate with both internal and external school entities, 2) how to build and maintain positive and active relationships via social and political capital and 3) how to translate the value of these relationships into positive change within the school. While exploring these three central themes, the book emphasizes how new technologies can aid school success. At the same time, real-world case studies at the beginning of each chapter introduce readers to actual public relations issues and bring the material to life.
The revised fifth edition of Public Relations in Schools is updated with new materials and references throughout the text, including two new chapters – one on harnessing technology for your public relations needs and one on collecting, assessing, and applying public opinion. In addition, the new fifth edition text contains a matrix at the front of the book showing how content relates to ELCC/NCATE Standards – the widely used criteria for administrator preparation and licensing.

By emphasizing the importance of two-way communication, this book offers a broad yet unique perspective on the importance of successful public relations programs in schools by integrating theory and knowledge. A public relations program is about building and maintaining relationships through an open exchange of information, and this book teaches administrators, regardless of their assignment, how communication and relationships directly affect organizational behavior, and ultimately, school success. The concept of relational communication, added to this edition, emphasizes the importance of consciously using communication as a means to construct these relationships. From the concept of public relations itself, and its legal and ethical dimensions, to assessing applications of public relations that pose challenges to the effectiveness of programs, this text is extremely relevant for students preparing to be administrators and for those professionals already practicing.
This edition is organized into three sections that thoroughly examine contemporary perspectives on the application of public relations in educational settings.
