Superintendents' and Principals' Perceptions of Using Social Media to Develop a Brand Presence in a Small Northeast State

Nicole L'Etoile, Johnson & Wales University

Abstract

Social media has shifted the landscape and broadened the concept of educational branding. Developing a BrandED mindset and strategy in the digital age is necessary in today’s educational climate (Sheninger, 2015). Social media tools provide school leaders with opportunities to share successes on a frequent basis with stakeholders. This immediate sharing of successes could be a powerful tool for schools to proactively shape their public image (Scott, 2011). ^ This mixed methods study explored experiences of public school superintendents and principals using social media to communicate with stakeholders as a component of their communications and public relations strategy to establish a brand presence.
