Q & A


Important Information

The Public Information Office acts as a liaison between you and the media. But, what should you do if you have to talk directly to a reporter? How should you act? How should you handle yourself?

If a reporter contacts you—you must notify your principal and/or the Public Information Office! Principals, notify the Superintendent. A reporter who shows up at a school where the principal was not notified may not be let into the school!

It is imperative to involve the principal and/or Public Information Office in media requests to properly screen them. Their role is to protect you and the District, ensuring a fair and seamless interview. This screening process is crucial in preventing any potential setup or unfair representation. Rest assured that involving the Public Information Office guarantees a positive outcome for all parties involved.
