School District 21 has published a community newsletter for many years, first called The Grapevine and later The Author. The Author is produced twice per year and highlights student learning and growth, staff activities and achievements, and steps School District 21 takes to maintain its commitment to fiscal responsibility.
CCSD21 added an e-newsletter in fall 2018. The e-newsletter will offer regular updates on many of the same topics, without waiting for the biannual mailing of The Author. All parents and staff automatically receive the e-newsletter. Community members interested in receiving the newsletter should email [email protected].
