Media Relations & News
The Public Relations Department will be the district liaison with the public news media, often with the Superintendent serving as the spokesperson. All contacts and releases concerning district policies and regulations, matters of district-wide interest, or potentially controversial topics will be handled or cleared by the Public Relations Department. The goal of the Public Relations Department is to always provide the media with the best content expert available to speak on the matter at hand.
For additional information on how West Fargo Public Schools works with local media outlets, please review district policy on Relations with the News Media.
