Communications

What We Do

​In alignment with the division’s Strategic Plan, the Office of Strategic Communications aims to improve organizational effectiveness by cultivating a valuable, relevant, engaging, and easily accessible communication model.

Media Coverage

The Office of Strategic Communications encourages schools and departments to actively engage their communities in outreach activities that promote services, programs, accomplishments, and opportunities for partnership. The Communications team provides counsel and support to schools and departments in the generation, design and delivery of communications products and has the primary responsibility of interacting with the media.

If your school or department would like to publicize an upcoming event or news story, please complete the ACPS Media Coverage Form (ACPS login required). A member of the Communications team will respond within 24-48 business hours.
