The Office of Policy and Communications works to enhance communications between the school board, FCPS staff and the general public in order to build a public understanding and support for FCPS.
Steve Edwards, Coordinator of Policy and Communications, serves as the clerk of the school board and provides communications and public information services to the school division, each department and school. He also functions as the communications contact during emergencies on division or school levels.
The office establishes public information training sessions for staff and parent groups, serves as the division's liaison with community groups, develops ways to bring the community into the schools and coordinates the school board's Awards of Excellence program.
All media contacts for FCPS or individual schools and/or employees are to be coordinated through the Office of Policy and Communications.
