Question: Newsletter Program

Our school newsletter is in need of some work. We are willing to invest in a program to help make the creation easier for our publisher. We want a prgram that will allow us to create files we can let parents accress through a link on the district website. What program does your school use to create their newsletter?

Mack0705, we use MJS Software. It does exactly what you're looking for and is much less expensive in the long run than the others mentioned. At least that's what we found. Our biggest issue was that our PTO was using various tools for everything (event planning, volunteer management, directory making, etc.) and we all ended up with different contact lists. This solved our problems - in fact, I think our school admin now uses it for contact info because their own system is so out of date. I hope it helps.
