KSBA’s expanded use of electronic media continues to build users among board members, superintendents, and others interested in Kentucky’s public schools and education in general.
Here’s an update on the latest user data:
More than 600 followers have access to breaking Kentucky school news, border state and national K-12 news that surpassed 6,200 tweets earlier in May.
A daily average of 350 to 400 individuals check out the KSBA Facebook page with approximately a dozen of the daily postings being passed along by readers to their friends on Facebook.
The popular morning and afternoon headline service, eNews, passed the 2,800-recipient mark this spring. KSBA staff now checks more than 100 online news outlets in Kentucky daily, with another dozen out-of-state education news sources searched on a regular basis.
The top three eNews stories from each morning and afternoon news cycle and most recent Facebook and Twitter postings also appear on the homepage of the KSBA website.
Other frequent additions to the KSBA website are featured in the rotating “flash” links atop the homepage, such as one added this week about the on-site training offerings for districts by the association’s Legal and Administrative Services unit.
This year, the website has added staff-produced videos on coming events and association services. Check out the latest video on the home page, explaining how the eNews Headline Service is produced.
Longer videos are posted to KSBA’s YouTube page, such as the employer panel discussion on career readiness skills needed by high school graduates.
And, of course, Boardcast, which provided 174 items just like this one over the past 12 months.
We’ll keep looking for new ways to keep our members in the know online.
