How We Helped Adams 14 Parents for Great Schools and University Prep Raise Support for a New Charter School in Commerce City
Adams 14 Parents for Great Schools, an organizing initiative of Transform Education Now, unites a group of parent leaders with the goal of facilitating educational improvement in Adams County School District 14, located in Commerce City, CO. In 2021, Adams 14 Parents for Great Schools came to Effct.org in partnership with University Prep, a longtime partner of Effct. Their goal was to capture the attention of Commerce City parents by catalyzing support online for a new, local University Prep school. University Prep (also known as U Prep) is a network of free charter schools in Denver dedicated to preparing their scholars for college and to pursue their dreams.
Effct used a digital campaign consisting of static Facebook ads to garner the attention of community supporters and parents interested in the schools. Using new branding for Adams 14 Parents for Great Schools, the Effct team designed ads to catch the attention of our target audience. Ads were created and targeted based on our various key audiences and placed accordingly. For authenticity, these ads used pictures of real parents advocating for new schools, allowing the ads to be true to their message. The ads were run in both English and Spanish, and ads run in both of these languages were highly successful throughout the campaign.
