Fayette County School System Annual Publication Goes Electronic

The 2007-2008 Annual Report for the Fayette County School System is now available for download on the school system’s website.

This marks the first time that the annual report has been distributed electronically instead of in traditional print format. Residents who have signed up for the school system’s RSS feed automatically received the publication last week.

The move to distribute the publication electronically resulted in a savings of over $7,000 in printing costs.

A limited number of printed copies are available for residents who do not have access to a computer or have trouble downloading files. Changing the publication from full color to black and white and using a less expensive paper further reduced printing costs of the limited quantities.

The annual report is one of the first printed publications that will be distributed electronically. Not only does this measure save money, but it also makes documents more accessible and is environmentally responsible.

“We realize that it will take time for our residents to get used to this change but we believe the cost saving benefits will be well worth the adjustment,” says Melinda Berry-Dreisbach, public information specialist for Fayette County Schools. “ I highly suggest that residents sign up for our RSS feed so that they know exactly when new publications and news items are added to our website. The feed eliminates the need to constantly check the site for new information.”

The RSS feed is free. Instructions on how to sign up for it are on the website,

Anyone interested in receiving a printed copy of the 2007-2008 Annual Report can call 770-460-3535 to have one mailed or pick up one from the Fayette County Board of Education office located at 210 Stonewall Avenue in Fayetteville from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
