Pine Tree ISD Communications and Public Information Department

The Pine Tree ISD Communications and Public Information Department collaboratively works to provide the necessary internal  support and training that cultivates effective organizational communication, while developing and maintaining external communication platforms that build relationships centered on trust and transparency with those we serve.

We believe our primary responsibility to engage stakeholders (staff, students, parents, and community members) in meaningful and profound ways, which lead to meaningful connections.

Pine Tree ISD's Communications Department encompasses the following district functions:

Public Relations
Recognition of District Student and Staff Accomplishments
Media Relations
District Website and Social Media
District Publications
Crisis Communication
Digital Communication (e-newsletters)


This department is responsible for directing and managing all district communications functions while ensuring strategies are in alignment with the district's values and core beliefs.

News and photos may be submitted for consideration in district publications and local news media sources. To request a news release or other publicity, contact the public information office. Each campus has a designated webmaster to post information on campus websites.  Pine Tree ISD seeks to provide consistent, accurate, and timely information in a coordinated manner to the community and the media.
