Welcome to the Haywood County Schools’ Public Information Blog.  I’m Bill Nolte the Associate Superintendent for Haywood County Schools.  One of my job responsibilities is serving as the public information contact person for the school district.  Each school has a media contact person who works with the principal to submit regular school news to the media.  This blog provides access to district information that is shared through newspaper columns, the Haywood County Schools Report radio program and district-level press releases.

Newspaper columns posted on the blog have been published in The Mountaineer and/or the Asheville Citizen Times.  The posted columns are unedited drafts with suggested titles and the submission date.  Columns focus on educational and human-interest topics.  Columns are posted after being published in the paper.

The radio programs posted on the blog are recorded copies of the Haywood County Schools’ Report.  The Haywood County School’s Report is a talk radio program that airs weekly on WMXF-1400 AM & WPTL-920 AM.  Radio programs are posted by title and “air” date.  Programs are posted after they air.

The press releases posted on the blog cover a variety of topics.  Press releases are not created or posted when we have previously been interviewed by the media for newspaper articles, radio programs or television news stories.  Press releases are posted after their release.
