How To Work With Our Editorial Department

Our writers and editors are always looking for story ideas as well as experts and educators who can be sources for our articles. We also want to hear about how school districts are solving challenges. Below are several ways to get involved with our editorial department.

Sources for Stories

Visit our Sources for Stories page to see if we are currently seeking sources for any stories. Or contact Executive Editor Eric Weiss or Managing Editor Lori Capullo to pitch a story.

Districts of Distinction

  • Districts of Distinction is a national recognition program created by District Administration magazine to honor school districts that are leading the way with new ideas that work. We’re looking to recognize established initiatives that are yielding quantifiable benefits, and that could be replicated by other districts. If your school district is engaged in an innovative project that is improving student outcomes, streamlining operations or meeting the needs of your community, it could be a District of Distinction.

Submitting a Press Release or Pitch

  • Please note that we no longer publish press releases from companies on our website or press release summaries in our magazine. You may, however, email your press releases to our editorial and sales staff at danews@lrp.com.
  • When sending a story pitch, please do not submit to multiple editors without being transparent about that within the same email.
