Communications and Community Engagement
he City School District of Albany Communications, Creative and Community Engagement departments conduct outreach to students, parents, teachers, staff, local leaders and policymakers.


The Communications and Creative teams produce the district's quarterly newsletter, Capital Education, the annual school calendar and a variety of other materials throughout the year.


Communications and Creative staff also maintain content on the district website and manage the district's social media tools. Staff also interact with the media to share news about district people, programs and events, and respond to media requests for interviews and information.


The district requires all students to have a signed media and photo release form prior to appearing in video or still photography, or being interviewed for stories to be distributed by the district or media.
