New COVID-19 Student Led PSA's Recognized by Board
On December 2, 2020, the Teaneck Board of Education recognized over 30 students and staff members for their participation in creating COVID-19 Safety videos (in English & Spanish) that are age-appropriate and meant to be shown to our students as they return to school. All nine PSA (Public Service Announcement) video clips are available on our District YouTube page (become a subscriber!) and we invite parents to watch them with their children: https://www.youtube.com/c/TeaneckPublicSchools/videos
We are extremely proud of this collaborative effort - one that supports the goal of our new Internal & External Communication Plan to get more students involved in our go-forward communications. This also supports our Media Arts initiative that includes the Media production club that has now been in place for 2 school years.
Congrats to ALL of the students and staff who were involved in this outstanding collaboration. Special thanks to our Digital Media Production club!
