Sharing the KSD Story

Our team supports schools and students by coordinating communication with families, staff and our community. 

As professional communicators and the voice of our district, we tell inspiring stories, share important information and keep our community connected to the latest news about Kennewick schools, programs, events, staff and student achievements, and more. 

To stay in the know, visit the KSD website frequently, subscribe to our #ksdtrending eNewsletter, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

Media Requests

Media representatives should send their requests, including any deadlines, to Robyn Chastain, executive director of communications and public relations, at Your request will be responded to as quickly as possible.

We ask that media representatives do not reach out directly to our schools or school district employees with media requests. Our school employees are focused on student learning and ensuring the safe operations of  our schools. 


Distributing e-flyers to our families

We use an e-flyer service called Peachjar to send out information about educational, recreational and social opportunities for our students to families. This service is made available to local non-profit organizations. Learn more about Peachjar and setting a free or paid account. 


Public Records Requests

Public records requests are submitted through the district's legal counsel. Learn more at Public Records Requests.
