Focus on Education Newsletter


"Focus on Education" is District 401's print newsletter. It's published twice a year, usually in the fall after the school year begins and in the summer after the school year concludes.

Typically our newsletter contains articles about recent achievements by our students and faculty, information about plans and policies recently enacted by the Board of Education, and a look at important upcoming events.
