More is Better
The Notebook is now published six times per year. Each fall, the Notebook publishes a Fall Guide with information about District high schools and starting the year off right.
The Notebook has recently reenergized our web presence to become a multi-platform news service with extended reach in the communities we serve. Members can access unlimited online content, including the daily blog and breaking news.
We're working on creating a member directory and other ways of getting our members connected.
In 2013 we were pleased to offer discounts for members to the following organizations and businesses. We will announce the 2014 discounts soon -- contact us at email@example.com if your business is willing to offer discounts.
