Writing press releases
In this day of social media and rogue journalism, the press release is still a viable form for getting information to key audiences. When creating a press release, be sure to get the most out of it you can. “Re-purpose” the release to use for different types of media (website, Facebook, Twitter, traditional media, etc.).
We’ve put together some press release formats and samples to help your district get the word out. If you have questions or need help, contact MASA Communications at communications@MCSA.org or our friends at the Missouri School Public Relations Association (MOSPRA_Director@iCloud.com).
