Nova Central School District values a cooperative relationship with the media. The primary contact person for the media at the district is the Senior Administrative Officer (SAO) – Corporate Services, who coordinates media relations activities. The Director of Education is the official spokesperson for the district.

The SAO (Corporate Services) will work with the Director’s office and school administrators/assistant directors to provide the media with appropriate information and access in a timely manner. The school district must balance cooperation with the media with the privacy of our students and staff.

Media Access
