Welcome to the Office of Communications

We are an award-winning school public relations team, passionate about sharing Poway Unified's story with our community. 

The Poway Unified School District strives to provide ongoing information about our schools, programs, and students. All work supports our District vision and mission, and is guided by the 2021-24 Strategic Communications Plan

The Communications Department facilitates communication with internal and external audiences and builds and maintains relationships to continue the high level of community engagement throughout PUSD and our schools. 

Strong, proactive communication is the foundation for a strong public school district.
