What We Do

TSPRA is dedicated to promoting public schools through effective communications. TSPRA, an award-winning chapter of the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA), was chartered in 1962 and incorporated in 1977. With more than 1,200 members, TSPRA is comprised primarily of public information and communications professionals who serve Texas public school districts and education associations, foundations and organizations. The membership also includes superintendents, school administrators, principals, executive directors, web/technology/electronic media and graphic professionals, teachers, school consultants, vendors and others who support public education in the state.
