Media requests

District 131's Public Relations Office can assist with media requests, including interviews and site visits. While the District is committed to open, two-way communication, this must be balanced against the right to privacy of minors who attend our schools.
 
With prior permission from the Public Relations Officer, reporters will be allowed on to school property to photograph or report on school events or other educational activities. For safety and security reasons, reporters who do not have prior approval will not be allowed on school grounds or into any school building. Additionally, each photographer must obtain the name of the children shown in the photos they intend to use, so they can be checked against the school’s media waiver files. This is to protect the minors shown in photographs, as well as expedite the process for media approval.
