The Office of Public Engagement supports the mission and vision of Jackson Public Schools. We strive to improve stakeholder satisfaction and support by providing consistent, timely and accurate information while making the most of opportunities for effective, two-way communication with our community as we aim to increase student achievement.
Public Engagement Services
Public Engagement employees work with every department and school within JPS to meet their 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.
