  • All requests for information from members of the news media should be referred to the District’s Public Information Officer. Christina employees will not comment on behalf of the School District, nor provide information regarding the Christina School District without first receiving authorization from the Public Information Officer or Superintendent of Schools. 

  • Members of the press will be permitted on school grounds only if prior arrangements have been made with the building principal, Superintendent of Schools and/or the Public Information Officer. Students are never permitted to be interviewed without explicit parental consent either verbally or in writing. CSD and parent/guardian permission must be secured before students can be interviewed, photographed or filmed by media representatives. Visitors from the press must be accompanied by a staff member at all times.

  • Media covering sporting events will not need prior approval as long as they are only present for that event and are not reporting on other items.

  • The Public Information Office should be notified of a school event that is of public interest, a month in advance, to allow adequate time to increase the likelihood of media coverage.

  • All media representatives (radio, newspaper, television, etc.) should be referred immediately to the Public Information Office. Email or call Alva Mobley at or 302-300-0395 (mobile).
