The Affton School District welcomes members of the media into our schools and strives to provide the most accurate and timely information available.
Please contact the Community Relations office at (314) 633-5908 if you’d like to interview Affton educators and administrators. We are happy to put you in touch with the correct person and/or resource for your story, and can arrange an interview time.
If you would like to visit a school, please contact the Community Relations office. We will be happy to escort you to any school for the interview or story. We will work with your schedule, as well as that of the students and staff, to ensure that your visit is successful. Please offer a few available dates for your visit in case a school has a conflict on a particular day.
Photographing Students and Staff
Some students choose not to be photographed. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) allows students and parents to opt out of the release of certain information about students, including photographs, and the Affton School District operates in compliance with this law. Before we can allow anyone to take photos, video and/or quotes from our students, a building administrator or the Community Relations office must verify that these individuals have the proper release information on file.
You can stay current with the latest information about the Affton School District Board of Education with BoardDocs, where you can view agenda items and board meeting activities.
For more information, or to request access to a school campus, please contact Erica Chandler, Community Relations Director, at (314) 633-5908 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
