Southfield Public School District welcomes members of the media into our schools and strives to provide the most accurate and timely information available.
Please contact the Director of Communications if you would like to interview Southfield Public Schools' educators and administrators. We are happy to put you in touch with the correct person and/or resource for your story and can arrange an interview time.
If you would like to visit a school, please contact the Director of Communications. We will be happy to escort you to any school for the interview or story. We will work with your schedule, as well as that of the students and staff, to ensure that your visit is successful. Please offer a few available dates for your visit in case a school has a conflict on a particular day.
Photographing Students and Staff
Some students choose not to be photographed. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) allows students and parents to opt-out of the release of certain information about students, including photographs, and the Southfield Public School District operates in compliance with this law. Before we can allow anyone to take photos, video and/or quotes from our students, a building administrator or the Director of Communications must verify that these individuals have the proper release information on file.
You can stay current with the latest information about the Southfield Public Schools Schools Board of Education with BoardBook, where you can view agenda items and board meeting activities.
During an emergency, the media will not be allowed inside affected school building(s). You are asked to refer any questions/requests to the Communications Office. We will work to obtain information from our response team and local authorities on-site and respond to you as quickly as possible. Please do not try to circumvent this process by contacting the school directly. School phones are needed to manage the situation and they must remain open.
For more information, or to request access to a school campus, please contact the Anika Corbett, Director of Communications, at (248) 746-8542 or via email.
