What We Do
The Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind’s Media and Communications team is dedicated to using visual storytelling, compelling narratives, and meaningful interactions to ensure that every individual within our close-knit educational community feels seen, heard, and valued.
As a dedicated team, we possess a profound understanding of the unique needs and challenges of our diverse community. Together, we are committed to utilizing our collective skills to amplify the voices and stories that matter most, striving to create an inclusive and empowering platform for all. Here’s how we do just that:
Our media and communications team ensures the seamless live streaming of all significant events, encompassing Board Meetings, Graduations, Sporting Events, Training Sessions, Campus Townhalls, and more. Our unwavering commitment lies in making certain that every live event is fully accessible to all members of our diverse communities.
Social Media serves as a creative and dynamic channel to connect with our community. Our primary goal is to share engaging content that highlights the accomplishments of our students, staff, and their remarkable achievements. Through strategic posts and thoughtful storytelling, we aim to bring their successes to the forefront and foster meaningful engagement with our audience.
Our team plays a vital role in ensuring the creation of accessible video content across all departments. With expertise in the video production process, we collaborate closely with the interpreting department and Audio Describers to develop videos that are inclusive and enjoyable for our entire community. By prioritizing accessibility, we strive to enhance the viewing experience for all individuals.
Our team’s comprehensive event coverage at both campuses serves as a valuable archive, preserving important moments throughout the years. Our mission is to ensure that our communities feel intimately connected, as if they were present and actively included in the celebrations or events we document. By providing a window into these occasions, we aim to foster a sense of belonging and engagement among our community members.
Our collective commitment lies in leveraging our skills to amplify the voices and stories that hold significance, aiming to foster an all-encompassing and empowering platform. Our approach is anchored in aligning with the strategic plan, ensuring that our efforts are purposeful and cohesive, and yield impactful outcomes for all our stakeholders.
