Media Guidelines
We are committed to celebrating the accomplishments of students, faculty, and staff through a variety of broadcast, online, print, and audio media while also protecting the privacy and safety of all students. Our media guidelines detail rules that are strictly enforced on District property to ensure that our students have a safe and secure learning environment free from disruption.

Visiting a School Campus
When a member of the media is on District property, the Communications Director, Senior Communications Specialist, or a designee will serve as an escort to facilitate logistics of the visit, minimize school interruption, and assist with additional requests. If you would like to visit one of our schools, please contact the Communications Director to schedule a date and time.

Photographing & Interviewing Students
Cambridge Public Schools strictly adheres to student privacy preferences and guidelines on the release of student information, outlined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). At the beginning of each school year, parents/guardians are asked to complete a Media Release Form, which determines media permissions for their student. This allows families to choose the capacity in which their child can be included in photographs and video footage taken internally by our Communications team and/or externally by local media outlets. The Office of Communications will work with each school in advance of all media opportunities to determine which students can and cannot be photographed and/or interviewed.

Please direct all media inquiries to Communications Director Sujata Wycoff at [email protected]. If you are a member of the media, please include your deadline and our team will do its best to meet your request.
