The Office of Media Production Services provides support for the integration of video, cable programming, teleconferences, instructional materials, and multimedia throughout the school division. The department produces a variety of professional communications for distributing information and materials to students, teachers, staff, parents and the community. Media Production Services also programs and produces original programming for PWCS-TV, the school division's dedicated television channel on Comcast Channel 18 and Verizon FiOS Channel 36 in Prince William County.
Pictures are a vital part of telling the PWCS story. According to current policies and regulations, photographs and video images of any student engaged in school activities may be produced and used in any School Division program, publication, or exhibit, if deemed appropriate by the principal or other School Division designee. Photos, images and video may also be authorized for use by external entities, such as the news media and scholarship providers, so long as this is in the best interests of students, the school, and School Division, and complies with other regulation guidelines. Any parent wishing to avoid use of student photos and images by external organizations may fill-out and submit an opt-out form. The form, along with the complete text of the relevant Regulation 790-3, may be found HERE. Copies may also be obtained through the schools.
