Our clients & partners

We work collaboratively with educational programs and school communications professionals within ESD 112 and across the state of Washington!

REGIONAL COMMUNICATIONS CONSORTIUM

In the six-county ESD 112 region of Southwest Washington, our district clients choose to participate in a consortium for regional communications coordination, so they don’t have to go it alone when it comes to big issues like COVID-19, school funding, labor disputes, and emerging hot topics. Areas of focus are discussed and materials produced through collaborative communication and messaging development. In the 2021-22 school year alone, we produced over 50 documents, resources and graphics for our Consortium on hot topics in our region.

COVID–19 Crisis Communications

The COVID-19 pandemic was like no other period of crisis communication. Early on, we realized that with such complicated, evolving communications the best approach was a regional one. Because we are stronger together.

what our clients are saying

The COVID-19 pandemic has been extremely difficult on families, students and for school district personnel. Being able to share information, challenges and successes has created a community of communication professionals that is closer and more helpful to each other than ever. Thank you ESD 112 for all you do.

Rick Parrish

Director of Communications & Operations, Longview Public Schools

I just wanted to say a quick thank you for organizing the calls, supplying the agendas, providing resources and the wrap ups.  Especially, as a relatively new person to the education communications world,  these resources and talks have been really helpful. Once again, thanks for all that you are doing. I appreciate it.

Craig Birnbach

Communications Manager, Evergreen Public Schools

“After publishing our annual report, I was excited and blown away at all Communications helped us accomplish. Our work simply could not be done without your incredible talent, guidance and contributions. You continuously make things better and take our ideas to the next level.”

Christopher Belisle

Community Prevention Coordinator, Prevent Coalition

As a communicator in a smaller district in the region, sharing the work of creating great messages, translating documents, and anticipating questions we needed to be able to answer during the COVID-19 pandemic was a huge support. The shared resources were much better than we could have created working by ourselves, and have garnered praise from our school board, district leadership, and district families.
