The TCSS public relations (PR) department handles ALL communications at the system level. We also provide strategic and crisis communication counsel to Cabinet-level members and Building Administrators.

The department typically hosts in-person special events and recognition ceremonies. The department's work is seen by internal and external stakeholders. Our department mission is to provide strategic counsel to organizational leaders, raise public confidence in TCSS, share information with stakeholders such as news and media organizations, gain stakeholder insight, and recognize and reward employees.

Major programs, events, and activities include but are not limited to rewards & recognition programs such as Teacher of the Year and Employee Retirement program, Partners in Education, Webmasters, Annual Meetings, Open Records Requests, Photography, Digital Media Enhancements, Videography, Editing, and Other PR and media requests. The department relies heavily on an effective PR staff (1 Director, 1 PR Assistant, 1 Social Media Coordinator/Website Administrator) to maintain and capture information in various locations throughout the district and to provide communication support. The department creates system-wide and community communication, such as academic calendars, strategic planning documents, brochures, and other critical information for the district.
