BY DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL
On matters of board actions and statewide matters on departmental policies, plans, organizations, and related information, the superintendent or his designee shall issue news releases.
The state librarian, district superintendents, complex managers, and school principals or their designees may release information related to their activities.
This policy is not intended to prevent routine factual or statistical data and news stories going directly to the media from schools, districts, and state offices.
The above authorizations do not apply where there is a necessity for restricting premature disclosure of information which might prejudice the orderly and responsible conduct of government.
See: Governor’s Administrative Directive No. 2, 2/13/63
