What are we doing in Castleberry ISD about Ebola?
 
  As community concerns arise related to news about the Ebola virus cases in Dallas County, we want to update you on the procedures Castleberry ISD has in place to ensure our students, staff, and communities remain healthy and safe.

CISD is working in conjunction with Tarrant County Public Health Department, our state and federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The latest information can be found at the TCPH web site.

  Life on YouTube at Castleberry ISD  
  Castleberry ISD has active accounts over several social media outlets. Facebook is by far the standout in engaging with parents and the community. Twitter has become a consistent tool for teachers, staff, and some community activity. We have even used Google Hangouts for classroom events and Skype for students’, teachers’, and the community’s classroom experiences recently. 

There is another area in social media where CISD is quietly growing and excelling. That area is YouTube. If you haven’t visited and, especially subscribed, to the Castleberry ISD YouTube Channel, now is the time. The CISD channel is rapidly growing, but can become even more successful with increased subscriptions and more active engagement from the district and community.

We have recently added a new playlist, Safety at Castleberry ISD. Castleberry Elementary has two informative videos on this channel. Take a look, and please submit videos for inclusion in this new playlist, as well as any others on the channel.

The Castleberry ISD YouTube Channel was started in January 2012. For the first 365 days the channel was operating, these were the key performance stats.

• Views – 5,728
• Estimated minutes watched – 3,282
• Likes – 15
• Comments – 1
• Top Video Watched – CISD Overview & Alma Mater – 6,228

Over the last year 365 days, 2013-2014, performance tripled and nearly quadrupled in some categories.

• Views – 14,354
• Estimated minutes watched – 20,347
• Likes – 76
• Comments – 21
• Top Video(s) Watched – Apply a Best for All Columns in Current View (Microsoft Excel instructions) – 4,547 (most views)
• CISD Happy Video – 1,420 (most minutes watched and likes)

This growth over the last two and half years is remarkable. However, we have one area that needs support. The Castleberry ISD YouTube Channel needs more subscribers. These are the people that follow us and get notifications when we post new videos.

With all the growth in viewers and minutes watched, the CISD channel has gained only 141 subscribers, lost 32, and have approximately 109, over the lifetime of the channel. This picture shows the growth pattern.


Think about being engaged and encourage others to do so when viewing videos on the Castleberry ISD YouTube Channel. View a video, become a subscriber, if you have not already done so.

Also we welcome information and ideas on videos, as well as video submissions. It helps us grow and provide you with helpful, informative videos as we continue to grow.
