The HCPS Communications Office is responsible for the school system’s public relations and communications efforts including marketing, internal communications, community engagement, media relations, etc. Educational public relations is a planned, systematic management function, designed to help improve the programs and services of the school system. It relies on a comprehensive, two-way communication process involving both internal and external publics with the goal of stimulating better understanding of the role, objectives, accomplishments and needs of HCPS. The goal of the Communications Office is to assist in interpreting public attitudes, identify and help shape policies and procedures in the public interest, and carry on involvement and information activities which earn public understanding and support. The Manager of Communications manages and coordinates these communications efforts and serves as the school system's chief spokesperson. The office aims to support the district's mission, vision and goals by building strong relationships with stakeholders, aligning messages for key initiatives and programs, and engaging the community in two-way communication targeted to their needs.

Hall of Fame

HCPS Hall of Fame Members

The Harford County Public School System began an Educator Hall of Fame program in October, 2000. Each month, during the school year, one former HCPS educator is inducted into the Hall of Fame based on their outstanding service to students, colleagues, and the community for at least 20 years. The prospective Hall of Fame members are nominated by the Harford County Retired School Personnel Association and confirmed by the Board of Education. The inductees (or their families in case the inductee is not available or is deceased) are invited to a Board of Education meeting where they are recognized with plaques, certificates from school and government officials, and are prominently featured on the school system website, www.hcps.org.
