The Public Information and Communications Department handles external communications and serves as the official source of information on behalf of FCS. The department is a primary point of contact for members of the news media requesting interviews with staff and students, or seeking information about operational or instructional matters.
FCS is a reporter friendly school system and welcomes the opportunity to work with members of the media and our staff to increase awareness and build support for public education in Forsyth County. Media inquiries/interview requests should be directed to Jennifer Caracciolo, Director of Public Information and Communications, at 770.887.2461 ext. 203363.
Maintaining a safe, orderly educational environment on the campus and in the classroom is the most important consideration when working with the news media at the school level. Annually, parents authorize the permission of their children to be photographed, interviewed or videotaped for materials promoting FCS (CLICK HERE). This also extends to publicizing exemplary classroom projects. Student information may appear in external or school system print and electronic publications, including yearbooks, television and the internet (website, facebook, twitter, etc). Annual FERPA notice to parents.
