Brownsboro ISD is committed to working cooperatively with the news media. It is the role of the Communications Coordinator to assist campuses in contacting the media, preparing for an on-site visit, and responding to media inquiries.
All media inquiries should be directed to the Communications Coordinator. Exceptions include routine athletic and/or extracurricular activity news coverage during games and/or performances conducted outside the normal school day.
The Communications Coordinator should be contacted when a representative of the media requests to visit a campus or arrives at a campus without prior approval. If a member of the media is on the premises without prior approval, he or she should be asked to leave and directed to the BISD Administration Building located at 14134 TX Hwy 31 E, Brownsboro, TX 75756.
