Public and Media Relations Services
P&MR staff members work with every department and school within JPS to meet its media needs through a myriad of techniques to maximize publicity for District and school-related events and activities including news releases, feature stories, photography, media contacts, press conferences, media invitations, and more. Specifically, we:
- Help District leadership, schools, and central offices publicize news, announcements, and events.
- Work with print and electronic media outlets to ensure fair, accurate coverage of school and District news.
- Collaborate with partner organizations to coordinate news conferences and other media events.
