Communications Department

The Buncombe County Schools Communications Department is responsible for maintaining effective communications with the community at large and within the school system itself. We provide media relations, public relations, crisis and safe schools communications for the county public school system.

We serve students, parents, employees, the community at large, and the news media by providing clear, timely, and accurate information about our schools and their programs. We keep the public informed about the exciting things happening in Buncombe County Schools, as well as about weather and safety information. Learn more about our various notification options!

The Communications Department seeks to keep parents and community stakeholders informed, keeping them abreast of the latest programs, events, initiatives, and issues impacting schools and students. The overarching purpose is to develop a framework of support for schools and for school system priorities. The Communications Department works to build advocates among all stakeholder groups through community engagement activities and via multifaceted communication products, including print and electronic information pieces, video, and social and traditional media.

If you have a general question regarding the school system, need to know who to talk to about a particular matter, have a comment or a concern, we are here to help. For general assistance, contact the Communications Department or call 828.350.2261.

Buncombe County Schools' active social media presence through FacebookTwitter, and Instagram allows community members to engage and stay informed in real-time. You may also check out exciting video features produced by the department on our YouTube page.
