Bernards Township K12 School District
Selects SnapKast to Enhance Communication
In an effort to increase the level of communication between
the Bernards Township School District and the members of the
school community, the district has selected SnapKast software
to create video podcasts.
video podcasts were used in the past year to communicate course
information to parents as part of the district curriculum.
recorded the video podcasts in their offices and then posted
them to the district website.
Parents and students who could not attend
the district curriculum presentations were then able to access
the same information given to parents on those evenings,
enabling them to make more informed decisions with their
children for course selection in the upcoming year. The
initiative began as a pilot with several administrators in
2006-2007. "As an administration, we felt this tool would
be a great way for us to communicate with everyone in the
school community at their convenience. We understand not
everyone can attend evening functions and they appreciate
the abiliy to access the same information as everyone else,"
said Brian Heineman, Supervisor of Science and Technology.
This year the Bernards Township school district will be expanding
its use of this method of communication and utilizing SnapKast
to create training opportunities for faculty and program
specific podcasts to help parents stay informed. District
Director of Curriculum Sean Siet believes this tool will also
enable everyone in the township to learn about specific
initiatives taking place within the district. "We are really
excited about the curricular opportunities that we've
been able to create for our students. By showcasing them
through the use of video podcasts, we believe that we can
increase community support by providing a broader understanding
of programs taking place in the district."
