UTICA, Mich., June 6, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Utica Education Association, the second largest teachers union in Michigan and its 1,400 educators, has launched a dynamic new website at UEAeducation.com which will become a clearing house for parent and community information.
The site, which was commissioned by UEA and developed by Inbound Lead Solutions in Troy, will serve as a much needed information base for the community and parents of students in the Utica Community School District. It will feature links to social media channels and blog updates on varying issues affecting children, parents and the local community.
“We’ve got some very effective vehicles for distributing information to our educators, but felt we needed to take the lead in sharing our collective insight to our parents and community,” said UEA President Liza Parkinson. “Our teachers are experts in issues affecting UCS children and we wanted to build a site which would better share our considerable intellectual resources in a public-facing, online environment.”
On the new site https://www.ueaeducation.com/ – which launched today – any member of the community can sign up for blog updates, get more engaged with relevant social media channels and connect with UCS educators with a text and email platform in a continued effort to enhance the communication channels between them and district parents.
Web content will cover a variety of topics of interest to anyone with a child, grandchild or relative attending UCS schools, helping to engage discussion and provide relevant guidance and news items as well as tools encouraging communication between educators and the community.
“Our teachers and professionals in UCS are doing some incredible things on a daily basis and we’re excited about having a one-stop site for us to communicate these positive outcomes in the district,” added Parkinson.
