The Indiana Department of Education says the annual school performance reports should be available for newspapers to download from the DOE website March 21.
Meanwhile, the publication window legally remains March 15-31, so newspapers will have to plan accordingly since the window effectively has been reduced to 10 days at most.
Planning is particularly critical for weekly newspapers since it may not be possible to process the reports for the week of March 21.
That leaves only the following week, March 28-31, for publication.
Let your advertising staffs know about the small window to get this important public notice advertisement published.
If you are unable to publish the notice by March 31, publish it as soon as possible.
