Press Release Summary: Global Village Academy is utilizing the latest technologies
to increase their leaders' efficiency and provide great communication to parents.

Press Release Body: First year charter school, Global Village Academy, adds an
additional cutting edge plan to their already innovative education style. The
school offers language immersion in three world languages, Mandarin Chinese,
Spanish, and French. They feature International Baccalaureate curriculum. From the
start, as parents' commitment to their children's education, school enrollment
involves parents offering 30 hours of volunteer service to the school. And now,
Principal Christina Burton and Vice Principal Debra Mitchell Salih have found yet
another way to bring innovation to their school.

"As I was considering how I could best be an asset to the school while fulfilling my
volunteer commitment, I considered my professional work and decided if I could
donate my skills as a online and offline Success Coach, it would be an easy fit for
me and very valuable to the school. The leaders at the school were open to the
idea, so we began crafting a plan." stated Michael Frazier, parent at Global
Village Academy.

The first order of business was to set up an website. The website
is designed for parents to ask any question and the Principal to have the ability to
address everyone collectively in a one hour call each week, so all parents can be
informed of school happenings and the Principal can experience greater communication
efficiency. In addition to having the ability to submit a question 24/7, the weekly
call is recorded, so if a parent is unable to listen at the time of the interview
call, they have the choice of hearing the call from their computer or even download
it to their Mp3 players and listen on the go. This forum shows an openness that has
never been seen in a Charter School or Public School before. This form of open
communication and commitment to the parents on a weekly basis insures that they will
have their questions addressed and is a great time management tool for both the
Principal and the Vice Principal.

Michael Frazier conducts the Ask Christina interview calls and added, "I won't allow
her (Principal Christina Burton) to avoid the question. I have a vested interest in
her answers, because my daughter attends the school. This brings a win-win concept
to school communication. And all the parents have access to the same information."
