Content Correction and Retractions

Admiral Farragut Academy writes and shares information online and in print about its students, parents, employees, alumni, donors, and the board of directors and trustees. All stories are published with the intention to promote the school, the individual’s personal experience, or share an event to promote attendance. If there is any information that is not accurate or may raise concern, please contact the Marketing and Communication Office by email communications@farragut.org or by phone (727) 384-5500 ext 266. Please include the url to the webpage you were online or describe the print piece and where the correction is needed. When corrections are made they are typically not noted online unless the administration deems it appropriate. They will be corrected and published live as soon as the mistake is noted. Corrections to print materials, such as the biannual magazine or marketing materials, will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. The magazine may have a section dedicated to corrections from the previous edition if the corrections are important in upkeeping the brand or individual’s reputation.
