ODE now offering broadcast programing and radio-ready releases

Many schools in Ohio have student run TV stations, radio stations and news websites. In addition, many school districts utilize district websites or electronic messages to communicate with their key audiences.

ODE’s Office of Communications wants to help students, teachers and administrators by providing informative educational programming that is easy to access and user friendly.

The Ohio Education Minute is a 60-second message from the Department of Education that will update listeners about the many reforms in education, as well as the successes that districts, schools and students are experiencing.

The Ohio Education Minute is available to be downloaded from the department’s website. The pre- recorded message can be used as part of a newscast, as a stand-alone message or uploaded as a podcast on a website.

In addition, the Office of Communications is distributing made-for-broadcast press releases that will include links to sound bites from department personnel. These “rip-and-read” releases also will be available on our website for quick access to news stories.

For more information about the new radio-friendly releases or to share potential story ideas for consideration, please contact ODE Associate Director of Communications John Charlton at (614) 728- 5959.
