The Newspapers-In-Education (NIE) program at the Citizen Newspapers provides newspapers to Rockdale and Newton county schools for use in the classroom as a supplemental teaching tool. The newspapers are part of the curriculum in all grade levels from elementary to high schools, and with virtually every class subject including math, reading, current events, economics, etc.
Our NIE program is extremely popular with Rockdale and Newton county teachers, curriculum coordinators and administrators, so the available newspapers are in high demand. Since the school system operates with limited expense budgets, we developed a Corporate Sponsorship Program to help with the funding.
Because of the demand for newspapers in the classrooms throughout the two counties, we start delivering the newspapers at the beginning of the school year to as many schools as possible, even before funding has been secured. Therefore, we are in need of sponsors year-round.
As our partner in this valuable program, you have the option of selecting the school(s) and/or classroom(s) to receive these newspapers from you. We will provide them with flyers recognizing your business as their sponsor. If you do not have a preference, your donation will be used to provide the newspapers to an available school.
