Board of Education Marketing Committee Meeting Minutes - October 2019

The Board of Education Marketing Committee is preparing a number of activities for the 2019-2020 school year. The minutes of the most recent meeting are attached for your review.

Winslow Township Board of Education
Marketing Committee Meeting
Tuesday, October 8, 2019
12:00 p.m.

Present: Dr. Poteat, Mr. Fortune

We discussed ways of engaging our parents and members of the community, as well as how we can continue to partner with the Township in meeting the needs of our students and parents.

1. In order to bridge the gap between parents and the schools, we would like to start with a “Chat and Chew with the Superintendent.” We would like to start by inviting parents to our next Board Meeting, starting at 5:30 p.m. with a light meal and allowing the Superintendent to address the gathering. He will talk about some of his concerns with student achievement and why developing a partnership with the parents is important. At the end of the meeting, we will raffle away several gifts. The target audience for the meeting are the parents. All Board members are encouraged to participate.

2. We also discussed using our T.V. Production Programs at the High School and Middle School to develop “video clips” on hot topics in the district. Our students will take part in conveying the messages. These video clips can be accessed on YouTube, using a computer or any electronic device.

3. In another effort to market our schools and the Township, a meeting has been scheduled for October 18, with the Mayor, Mr. Norm Ingram, High School T.V. Production Teacher, Mr. Wyatt Siatkowski, from the film industry, and a T.V. Production graduate from the Class of 2013. We will be meeting with Mr. Steve Gorelick, Executive Director of the NJ Motion Picture and Television Commission, and Ms. Elizabeth Parchment, Director of Marketing and Chief Diversity Officer, to pursue establishing a Winslow Township Film Commission in cooperation with the Winslow Township School District. This project should enhance the marketing efforts of the school district and the Township. More importantly, this opportunity could create for our students a career path to motion pictures and TV Productions here in South Jersey.

4. Winslow Township School District will be working with Virtua Pediatric Mobile Services to provide Oral Health education and Dental Services to all of our Lower Elementary Schools. Next year, they will also provide free Flu Shots. The Marketing Committee will assist in getting the word out to all of our parents.

5. Marketing Committee will also be assisting Atlantic City Electric by providing information to parents on electric bill assistance. That information will be available in the very near future.

6. The Winslow Township High School Auditorium will be dedicated on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. with a brief ceremony. The community will be able to tour the new auditorium from 10:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Our next Marketing Committee meeting will be scheduled in November.
