Aligned and Coherent Communications to Serve the Whole Person: A Workbook for State Education Agencies
Strategic communications is important for building awareness, engagement, and commitment for serving children and youth.

This guide is organized around six interrelated domains of alignment and coherence: Goals, Funding and Policies, Strategic Communications, Stakeholder Engagement, Capacity Building, and Data Use.
This Strategic Communications Workbook is designed to be used by SEA leaders as a companion to Serving the Whole Person: An Alignment and Coherence Guide for State Education Agencies in order to aid in the design and launch of their strategic communications efforts.
