The Wenatchee School District welcomes members of the media into our schools and strives to provide the most accurate and timely information available. If you are interested in reporting on a story within the Wenatchee School District, please review the following information.
Interviewing School Officials
Wenatchee 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 Wenatchee 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.
We welcome visits to our schools. As a courtesy we ask that anytime a reporter is on Wenatchee School District property, the communications office should be notified in advance. In some cases, it may be necessary for a communications staff member to serve as an escort. 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 Wenatchee 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 Wenatchee students and staff, please verify the legality of photographing these individuals with the communications department.
If you would like to request school photos of students and staff please contact the communications office.
