Print it out and turn it into a wall poster for your faculty lounge. Include it in a presentation that you are giving to your staff. Make it a centerpiece in your main office as a reminder to both parents and students of the school that you are trying to create.
The file that you are purchasing includes both a PowerPoint slide and a slide that captures the Creative Commons license and attribution of the background image.
