School/Community/Home Relations
Media Relations

The Sioux Falls schools are public institutions, accountable to taxpayers. The School Board believes in the importance of working with media representatives to keep the community informed about school issues and thereby, invites the participation of newspaper, radio, television, and electronic media personnel in providing information to the public. In addition to direct communication with its constituents, the Superintendent will use public media to keep the goals, programs, achievements, and needs of the District before the community.

The Office of Community Relations is the primary resource for all school information and the first link for media representatives wishing to pursue a school-related story.

The Superintendent or designee(s) shall coordinate the release of information concerning the District and the actions of the Board. All media conferences, whether the topic pertains to the District or to a specific building or program, will be coordinated through the Office of the Superintendent and Office of Community Relations.
