At District 123, we are implementing a "virtual backpack" program that we call
123 Paper Free is the Way to Be
We are using a "virtual backpack" program to:
- Be Environmentally Friendly
- Lighten our student backpacks
- Increase effectiveness of flyer distribution
- Save money for organizations
- Save time for District personnel
View the current "123 Paper Free" Postings
The District already has policies and procedures in place that limit the materials that students are asked to bring home to their families. "123 Paper Free" changes the distribution methods of those materials. Rather than local organizations making copies of their approved flyers, and District personnel coordinating their distribution to the schools, the flyers will instead be posted to this designated place on our website. A small number of paper copies will be made available in the District's Administration Center for those families without Internet access. Periodic e-mail alerts will be sent to the District's e-news group letting them know that new flyers have been added to the site. You can join the e-news group by entering your email address in the box provided at the bottom of our homepage.
