Changes to The Courier
Posted 07/27/2018 11:00AM

It is with a mixture of emotions St. Francis Area Schools announces the upcoming discontinuation of The Courier. After 25 years of a successful and high quality newspaper, October 2018 will be the final issue of the school district publication. The final issues will continue to focus on bridging the community and businesses.

"We would like to thank our loyal readers and advertisers who have supported The Courier," said Kathleen Miller, editor for The Courier. "However, school district leadership determined change was needed to move St. Francis Area Schools forward as a school district of choice. With the changing and growing needs of the district, it is time for the Communications Department to shift its focus."

This transition will provide exciting opportunities for St. Francis Area Schools to position itself to increase enrollment and build school pride. The Communications Department will focus on public relations, marketing and branding of the school district with the ultimate goal of increasing student enrollment. Resources will be dedicated to the school district website, forms and publications, eNews, social media and other tasks to serve the needs of the school district.

Stakeholders will be informed about school district happenings through a new quarterly school newsletter and more frequent website and social media posts. The first quarterly newsletter will be released November, with additional issues mailed to homes and businesses in February, May and August.

"The Courier staff is incredibly appreciative of advertisers and their support over the past 25 years," said Miller, who has been with the Courier for 24 years. "So many relationships have been established over the years, and the we will continue to support local businesses to make this transition for them as smooth as possible."

The Communications Department also plans to expand advertising opportunities in other district publications, such as Community Ed catalogs and the school calendar.

"While we make the transition, we want to assure everyone that we will continue to produce a great, high quality product. We are proud of our tradition of bringing news to this community. Please help us make the final issues of The Courier the best yet," Miller added.
