What we do

Welcome to the communications office! As the name implies, our job is to communicate with a variety of audiences and the media about what’s happening in Vancouver schools. We do this through print, television/video, social media, the district website and other methods.

Please communicate with us, too. If you are a VPS staff member, let us know what is going on in your school or classroom. Everything we do is to promote and support the students and staff members of Vancouver Public Schools.
