Here are some things to consider when covering events in Brandon School Division:
Access to Property
Media should contact the Office of Communications and Technology in Learning prior to contacting a school, by using the Media Information Request Form.
Please Note: Principals have the authority to decide whether media will then be permitted on school property.
We understand that as media, you may have a deadline. The Office of Communications and Technology in Learning will try to help you meet that deadline. However, we ask that you understand that it will take time to determine the most suitable person to be interviewed, and to arrange for the interview.
To comply with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), our principals and/or teachers must first check, through Policy 1007.5 External and Internal Media Use of Images and Recordings, to ensure students have parental consent before they are interviewed or photographed by the media. If you are covering an approved event at a school, please request permission from the principal before interviewing or photographing any of our students.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
