Important Community Relations Office Update (9/9/19):
Over the next few months, the capital project campaign will be the major focus of the Community Relations Office. Consequently, there will be less time to cover/photograph events, research/write articles, and follow up on other Community Relations requests.
- For SchoolGram articles, website articles, social media posts, press releases, event promotion, and any other PR requests, please use the Story Builder or submit an Advertising Request. These forms are designed to ensure that we have all the necessary information to minimize turn-around time for PR requests, which allows us to process a much higher number of PR requests. Priority will always be given to those who have submitted a completed PR request using the PR forms.
- Please be aware that there may be a delay at times in publicizing your article. Priority will be given to any timely PR requests (such as event advertising, or anything with a deadline associated with it).
- If you send multiple PR requests every month or two, or send PR requests throughout the year, please consider combining these into one, or providing a year-end recap.
- Please refer to the "Story tips" which can be found below.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and cooperation!
We want to share your stories! The purpose of this page is to ensure we have all the information needed to share your story in the SchoolGram, on the school/district homepages, on social media, and in press releases to our newspapers and TV/radio stations.
- Use complete sentences/3rd-person perspective. Social media posts, press releases, and news articles are written in 3rd-person perspective with factual information. “I/We” statements or opinions are great to include as quotes!
- Include all information exactly as you want it published. If your submission is missing information, this information will be absent from the story.
- Use full names (no courtesy titles). If someone is mentioned in your story (students, staff, etc.), please include their full name on first reference. Media outlets require full names, and most do not use courtesy titles (e.g. Mr., Mrs., Ms.).
