We are thrilled to introduce the Cotting School Parent Ambassador Program! This exciting new initiative is designed as an easy and informal program for parents interested in making a personal commitment to positively promote and represent Cotting School. We invite you to read more about the program below. If you are interested in signing up to be a Parent Ambassador please fill out the form on the right side of this page.
What is the Parent Ambassador Program?
The Parent Ambassador Program organizes current Cotting School parents as a part of Cotting’s outreach and marketing efforts. The program is a flexible way for parents to be involved in positively promoting and representing Cotting School, is separate from classroom activities, as well as PAC and CFB involvement. We are looking for Parent Ambassadors who would like to assist us in the following ways:
- Be present at Cotting School events (such as conferences, fundraisers, etc.)
- Participate at a Cotting School information session
- Exhibit with the Cotting School table at an external conference in Massachusetts
- Participate in a special education advocacy event
- Talk to other parents interested in learning more about Cotting or who are seeking admission and a smooth transition to Cotting School for their child
- Assist us as a Cotting Social Media Ambassador
What is the purpose of this program?
Our families are star ambassadors, even without a formal program! Word-of-mouth between parents is the best way to promote and share information about Cotting School. Many school families are here because they were referred to us by another parent. Sometimes parents are more comfortable talking with other parents to share information or ask questions that they would not be comfortable asking an administrator or a Sped Director. The Parent Ambassador Program encourages the Cotting community to be involved Cotting’s outreach efforts and seeks to recognize parents for the great work they already do in attracting new families to Cotting.
How will students benefit from this program?
Growing our network and our enrollment ensures that Cotting School has a prosperous future, which will allow us to bring new resources and enhance our curriculum and our programs.
Who can join the program?
Current Cotting School parents are welcome to join. This is a flexible program with many options for participation.
Why should I do this?
You are already doing it! The Parent Ambassador Program harnesses positive communication and provides a more structured way for members of the Cotting community to spread the word about the great work being done at Cotting School.
How much work does it involve?
You decide. You can talk to prospective families, attend events, pass out promotional material, call prospective families, be a Social Media Ambassador, or follow up with new families. How much effort you put into this program is up to you. The program is new and we are sure it will evolve in the coming years.
What if I don’t know anything about recruitment and marketing?
Don’t worry. We will learn together. Cotting School will provide the marketing materials, information, as well as the support and training you need to participate in a time frame and time commitment that is comfortable for you.
Do I need to complete training to participate?
All activities around children and in school require that you complete some forms and receive training, but the requirements are minimal and won’t take much of your time.
What happens next?
The information you provided in your form submission will be shared with Cotting’s Marketing Task Force and a member of the Cotting School staff will be in touch with you to discuss opportunities that might be a fit with your preference and schedule. Never hesitate to let us know if a certain date or event just won’t work for you. This program is meant to be a flexible and fun way to be involved.
