The Notebook staff is preparing for an exciting 2015 – another year of changes and challenges for the Philadelphia public school system … and for our nonprofit news organization. Your voices, your concerns drive our coverage. We also depend on you, our readers, to help financially to maintain and expand this independent, comprehensive coverage. The Notebook could not exist if not for your support.
Make a tax-deducible donation today to renew your membership or join our community of supporters. You can donate online or mail a check to Philadelphia Public School Notebook, 699 Ranstead St., 3rd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
Your donation will help support our mission: to promote informed public involvement in the Philadelphia public schools and to contribute to the development of a strong movement for educational change in the city. In addition, you will be helping us achieve our goals for 2015 – not only providing the coverage you count on, but undertaking a long-overdue redesign of our website and increasing our presence on social media. We are looking to deliver more high-quality content in 2015 – including a better mix of short and long articles and more information about specific schools.
Thank you for being a Notebook reader – and a contributor, we hope. The Notebook staff wishes all of you happy holidays and a wonderful new year!
