The Communications Department perpetually strives to support the mission of the North Little Rock District through the dissemination of accurate and timely information to internal and external stakeholders. This department will use multiple channels to communicate with stakeholders. An engaged community is beneficial to the schools; therefore, two-way communication strategies will be employed to highlight achievement across the district.

Media Relations Policy
The North Little Rock School District welcomes media and will work with members of the media to circulate information when it involves the district. The Communications Coordinator serves as the principal contact for the district. Therefore, it is imperative to contact the Communications Coordinator prior to going onto district property. Media is not allowed onto district grounds without permission from the Communications Coordinator.

Parents within the North Little Rock School District sign Photo/Video Release Forms at the beginning of the school year. They appear in the Parent-Student Handbook, which are distributed each year. Parents have the option to allow their child(ren) to be photographed by the district, district-authorized media, or local media. Each school maintains a database of students whose parents allow their child(ren) to be photographed. Please check with the school and/or the Communications Director before taking pictures or video.
