We love to spotlight the great teaching and learning happening in our classrooms, and we welcome press to cover stories about school and district news, events, programs, and activities. We also have lots of story ideas, so feel free to contact us if you need one!
We ask that reporters interested in doing stories with Tulsa Public Schools follow a few guidelines:
- All media inquiries about the district or our schools should be made to Director of Communications Emma Garrett-Nelson at 918-202-6956 (cell), 918-746-6298 (office), or firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please do not contact our schools directly.)
- If you would like to use the outside of one of our schools for a stand-up and/or live-shot, a quick text is appreciated.
- If you are covering a school event, please get approval from a teacher or school leader before interviewing any students. While we have releases for many of our students, there are some who cannot be photographed or filmed.
- We suggest that, unless you're brave, try not to visit schools during drop-off and pick-up times as the vehicle and foot traffic can be challenging.
