Who We Are
We are an award-winning team of public relations professionals, and we work to promote and publicize the great things happening in school districts. With backgrounds and skill sets in journalism, marketing, video development, graphic design and more, our service is far-reaching in the scope of what we do. Our home base is located in Mexico, NY, and we also have a satellite office located in Ithaca, NY.
What We Do
The CiTi Public Relations service exists to be communication leaders for public education clients, advising school districts on creative, strategic, innovative and effective communication solutions and collaboratively implementing those plans to enhance student learning and educational systems. Usually, one person on our team is established as a lead for your district. However, the team functions as a whole, with each member bringing a different skill set to the table. The entire team can be reached at: pr@CiTiboces.org.
How We Do It
- GRAPHIC DESIGN
We work with your team to create a customizable look suited for your needs. Our graphic design team creates a variety of digital and print materials ranging from newsletters to calendars and more.
- SOCIAL MEDIA
We create and manage social media accounts for school districts depending on their needs. It is important to keep social media pages fresh, so we work collaboratively with district administration and staff to post news-worthy activities in the classroom.
- WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT AND CONTENT MANAGEMENT
We work with third-party vendors to create and/or maintain your school district website: keeping content, news and photos up-to-date and accessible. See our ADA Compliance Cheat Sheet.
Our service includes on-site story and information development; writing and editing feature stories based on ideas provided by staff. We write and distribute press releases to local media, earning placement in newspapers and on TV. Most stories highlight academics, project-based learning and school happenings. We use these stories to create content for websites, district newsletters and other publications. We also assist with crisis communications.
- VIDEO CREATION
We write script, film and conduct interviews to create digital video content that may be used on social media and/or district websites.
