Interviewing School Officials
Rockwood employs educators and administrators who, often times, are leaders in education. Our staff is prepared to discuss current and important issues with reporters. If you are interested in interviewing a Rockwood employee, your first point of contact is with the communications department. We are glad to help you find the correct resource for your story and arrange an interview time. The communications department can be reached at 636-733-1140
Anytime a reporter is on Rockwood property, a communications staff member should serve as an escort. Rockwood staff expects the communications department to be involved in communication between reporters and schools. If you would like to visit a school, contact the communications department. We will work with your schedule as well as that of the students and staff in order to ensure that your visit is a successful one. Keep in mind that all of our schools participate in early dismissal days, standardized testing and school-wide events that may prohibit your visit on a specific day. When scheduling with communications, please offer a few available dates to visit the school.
Photographing Students and Staff
The Rockwood School District operates in compliance with Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. This law allows students and parents to opt out of the release of certain information about students including photographs. The communications department will work with each school to determine who cannot be photographed and interviewed according to FERPA guidelines. Before taking photos, video and quotes from Rockwood students and staff, please verify the legality of photographing these individuals with the communications department.
