Communications & PR

The Natick Public Schools communication strategy works to build public understanding (and support) for the District through stakeholder engagement by working collaboratively with students, parents, staff, and Natick community members.

Our communications efforts focus on consistent public and media relations, internal and external engagement and timely updates through our communications channels. We always promote excellence in education, learning in action, and highlight special events and award recognition. All of this is accomplished through: 
  • Community Relations
  • Media relations 
  • Photography
  • Press releases
  • Family Communication
  • Public Information
  • Video productions
Natick Public Schools is committed to honest, transparent and consistent communications.

Our brand is based on—and developed from—the experiences that our students, parents, and community members have had with our staff. It is built on the expectations our audiences have about the school district presently, and in the future.

The Communications Office oversees the following functions for the District:

Media Relations
The communications team is the primary point of contact for the news media. For media requests, please call 508-647-6400 x1496 or email communications@natickps.org.

Community Feedback
We value the input of our staff, families and community members. We gather feedback through surveys, Speak Up, Natick! conversations and community meetings.

Family Notifications 
Using Blackboard Connect as our mass notification provider, we are able to distribute calls, text messages and emails, keeping families up-to-date with the latest information about their children's school. Check with your school office to make sure your contact information is current in our student information system.

Photography & Video Production
We produce videos about schools, programs, staff, and students and publish these on our YouTube Channel, along with our social media or on the Natick Pegasus website. In addition, we work with our teachers at Natick High School to provide opportunities for students to participate in experiential learning by supporting the communications office with multimedia needs.

We publish a number of print and electronic publications. Subscribe to our eNewsletter today.
