Bob Edwards Weekly Blasts

Bob Edwards Weekly Blasts

After teaching in the Cortland Enlarged City School District for more than a decade and pursuing other educational avenues, Bob Edwards returned to the District as the Superintendent with new and exciting leadership ideas, one of them being his Weekly Blast.

School Superintendents these days must wear many hats.  One hat is that of a Public Relations Director. In our video/electronics age it seems natural for a leader of any kind to use technology to reach out to the public so that people can see what is happening in their local schools. Bob Edwards’ blasts, as he calls them, are put together by Cortland High School’s extensive Video Department. Dan Devlen, Broadcast Production and Technology Specialist, explains that “each week, CHS-TV tags along with Superintendent Edwards as he visits different classrooms and activities within the district schools, and reports on findings in quick video reports.”  So far, we’ve watched students’ math lessons at Barry Primary, proper hand washing skills at Smith Intermediate, social studies at the Junior High, and remote learning at Randall Middle. Add to the list last week’s visit to Cortland High School’s public speaking class and you can start to see inside the District and the learning that is occurring.

Mr. Edwards blasts the videos out to the public through his own Twitter account; videos are also posted on the district's social media and stored on the district’s web page in the
Cortland Tigers Videos section. Mr. Edwards video blasts are a great way for the people of Cortland to see what is happening in their schools.



Mr. Robert J. Edwards, Superintendent
