Media Relations

Media Guidelines

The Fox C-6 School District recognizes the important role the media plays in reporting news and information about its educational programs, services, students and employees. The District’s Communications Coordinator assists the media by providing information about the District. The department is committed to working with the media and making every effort to work within media deadlines.

Media Requests

All requests to interview, film or photograph district employees, students or board members should be made to JP Prezzavento, Communications Coordinator. phone: (636-296-8000, email: [email protected]

The Communications Coordinator will provide a representative who can best address the topic of the interview. Media interviews or photographs with students require parental consent. When requests for student interviews are granted, the interview is conducted at a district-designated site to minimize the loss of instructional time and disruption to the learning environment.

While Visiting the District

Media who want to film, photograph or interview Fox C-6 employees or students are asked to make a request through the Communications Department. When filming (live or taped), taking a still photograph, or conducting interviews while in the District, the Communications Coordinator will accompany members of the media at all times to minimize disruption at the school and to assist with any additional requests. As a safety and security measure, the media, like all visitors to buildings, are asked to sign-in and obtain a visitor's pass. Passes are available in the front office of each of the District’s buildings.

Board of Education Meetings

The media is invited to attend all open meetings of the Fox C-6 Board of Education. Media may film and/or record these meetings. To avoid disruption of the meeting, reporters and photographers are asked not to approach board members, guest speakers or members of the audience inside the board room during the meeting. Interviews must be conducted outside the boardroom in the hall or in a pre-arranged conference room. Copies of the board agenda, informational items and other meeting materials are available online on the Board’s e-governance Web site, which can be accessed via the District’s Web site at
