The Office of Strategic Communications works to enhance communication between the school board, school division staff, parents, and the general public in order to build public understanding and support for Albemarle County Public Schools. 

The Public Affairs and Strategic Communications Officer provides communications/public information services to the school division, as well as each department and school. The communications officer also functions as the communications contact during emergencies on division or school levels and directs all internal and external communications programs in print, electronic and social media. The office establishes information training sessions for staff and parent groups, serves as the division's liaison with many community groups, and develops ways to bring the community into the schools.

All media contacts for the School Division or individual schools and/or employees are coordinated through the Office of Strategic Communications.
