Is your school or district facing increased competition, diminishing resources, changing demographics, media scrutiny, and declining employee retention?
How to Market Your School is a comprehensive guide that provides school administrators with the essential tools to create a positive public image; attract students, qualified personnel, and volunteers; and build community support through a strategic marketing effort.

Although originally intended for public school administrators, How to Market Your School is equally valuable to private and charter schools.

Lockhart presents the fundamentals of integrated marketing in clear and concise terms and uses actual case studies to illustrate each aspect of successful school marketing.
