Lexington County School District One’s Communications Office works with the media to respond to their requests for information and/or interviews.
In order to protect instructional time at schools and to ensure that the media relations process works smoothly for everyone, reporters should not contact schools directly but should contact the Communications Office by calling 803-821-1150 for assistance.
Our office then works with school principals and public relations correspondents to determine if the schools can accommodate the reporter’s request.
Our office also contacts employees to make arrangements for interviews.
The district does not let students talk directly to a reporter without a parent’s prior consent.
The Communications Office provides several online resources that may answer media questions. The district’s Quick Facts page is particularly helpful.
Our office also shares Lexington District One news through news releases and event lists that we write and distribute for the district and its schools. We encourage media to cover certain school events and activities and provide a weekly media advisories for your convenience. You can find all of these on the district’s website here.
For any other questions, members of the media should contact:
