Public School District

Communications & Engagement

The office of Communications and Engagement provides important communication services that help assist with the District's departments and school sites.

One of our main priorities is to display and highlight the successes of our District and schools through photos, newsletters, events, recognition, social media, and community partnerships. The District's Communications also protects the HPSD brand by ensuring consistent graphics and styling.

Media Inquiries

The Communications Department is dedicated to providing prompt and comprehensive service. Our team can help you with data requests, coordinate interviews, visits to schools and special events. Our office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please email the communications department with any questions, inquiries or concerns.

Event Promotion

We are more than happy to help promote a school or community event. Please email the communications department to submit a request with detailed information about your request. Remember to include the following event information: event name, event description, date, time, and any images or fliers that have been created.

Public Records Request

A public record is any record containing information relating to the conduct of government business, which is prepared, owned, used, or retained by an agency. This includes, but is not limited to, electronic media, paper, email, documents and data. A valid public records request is a request for a specific and identifiable public document. A request for general information is not a valid public records request. You do not have to identify the record you want with exact precision, but as much detail as you can provide will be helpful. Our staff may assist in clarifying your request. Read more about Requesting Public Records from Hattiesburg Public Schools Here.
