Staff Media Relations Guidelines

Telling Our Story

All media communications will be handled by district administration and media interviews will be conducted only by approved spokespeople. If you are interested in inviting media on campus, please coordinate with our Marketing Department in advance.

Please refer all media inquiries to Mary Ellen Rowe, Marketing Director at (248) 623-5460.

Are you doing something exciting in your classroom? Do you have a standout student or alumni who is making a difference in the world? Are you or one of your colleagues participating in an interesting event, lesson, or professional development opportunity soon? Please help us tell the Clarkston Community Schools story in photos, videos, and words. Just complete the form below, or email Marketing Director Mary Ellen Rowe at and we may feature your news on the website, social media, or local news.

Media Inquiries

If you're ever caught off guard by a media inquiry, it's OK to refer the inquiry to our district Marketing Director or your building principal.
“I am not a designated spokesperson for Clarkston Community Schools. I would be happy to put you in touch with our Marketing Director, Mary Ellen Rowe, who can assist you with more information.”
