Last call for Speak Up surveys!

Spread the word about the survey with our last minute promotional ideas

With one week to go, there is still plenty of time to get the word out about Speak Up. If you just registered your district or are looking for new ways to promote the survey, try one of these ideas:
Host a Speak Up Day or week: Pick a day this week to have your K-12 community complete the Speak Up Surveys!
Focus on one survey type: A focus on teachers, parents and/or administrators is an easy push and a great way to receive a meaningful dataset. We recommend sending an email or phone recording to parents or email blast to your teachers. Click here for a variety of sample emails.
Highlight the Speak Up survey on your website using one of our Speak Up logos (with a link to the survey). Click here for the code to embed on your website. Make sure to include your survey password!
Use social media networks such as Facebook or Twitter to get the word out about Speak Up to your stakeholders. Try retweeting one of our @SpeakUpEd tweets or post from our sample tweets at the end of this newsletter.
