#TxEd Tuesday initiative started by school superintendents

82Three superintendents serving schools in Region 10, John Wink (Blue Ridge ISD), Doug Williams (Sunnyvale ISD), and Kevin Worthy (Royse City ISD), invite you to participate in the #TxEdTuesday social media campaign to promote public education, to encourage and thank legislators who support education, and to post messages of support/or opposition for bills that stand to impact students and teachers.

Here is how it works: (1.) Each Tuesday, participants will use Twitter and Facebook to engage their legislators about the great things happening in their public schools. (2.) They will also tweet and post messages of support for legislators and bills that can greatly improve public education. (3.) Don’t forget to attach pictures or images; it will increase engagement. (4.) Also, tag people, especially legislators. One goal is to let members of the House know that we support their work and their support of public education. (5.) Use the hashtag #TxEdTuesday to ensure your posts are part of the campaign.

So, here is what we need for you to do:

TELL IT – Tell your school’s story. What good news do you have to share? Also thank the legislators who support your students, families, and teachers. Post messages of support or opposition for bills that stand to impact students.

TAG IT – Tag your state representatives and senators (See the attached list). It is very important that you include the hashtag #TxEdTuesday. This will allow everyone to easily see the #TxEdTuesday tweets and retweet throughout the day.

SHARE IT – Share and retweet positive stories you see from other school districts. Let’s support each other and public education in Texas!
