Media Relations

  • Jarrell ISD will communicate with the press in numerous ways, including press releases, sharing digital media, assisting reporters with one-on-one story development and arrange access to students, teachers, and administrators as necessary.

    Building and maintaining a partnership with media outlets provides several benefits for the district:

    1. Shows students and staff achievement 

    2. Amplifies the district’s message about student learning, educational opportunities, and the district’s decision making.

    All media inquiries must go through the Department of Communications. Contacting administrators or campuses directly via phone, email or otherwise is not allowed and will delay deadlines journalists may need to do their job. Reporters may contact Nick Spinetto, Director of Communications, at (512) 746-2124 x 1005.

    Under no circumstances is media allowed on campuses or in buildings without authorization from or the presence of the Director of Communications. We do not allow spontaneous interviews with students, staff or parents on school property without prior approval. 

    Student/parent interviews can be obtained from any public place other than a Jarrell ISD campus. These guidelines extend to school buses or other forms of district transportation. Even though a Jarrell ISD bus may not be located on our campus, the media is not allowed to board a bus or vehicle to talk with students, staff or parents without prior authorization.

    In the event that the Director of Communications cannot be reached, all media inquiries should be directed to the Assistant Superintendent, Laura Buckley (512) 746-2124.
