If you’re a regular GothamSchools reader, you might have gotten a little surprise in your email inbox this morning: The first edition of our brand-new Rise & Shine morning newsletter.
Our readers have told us that they want even more ways to get the latest New York City school news from GothamSchools. So starting today, we’ll be sending out an email every weekday with our Rise & Shine headlines, highlights of our reporting, and other bonus content including snapshots from city schools.
(E-mail us with pictures of events, classes, or field trips from your school, and you could wind up in the newsletter yourself.)
If you already subscribed to the automatically generated email summary of each day’s reporting that comes out every night, we’ve added you to the newsletter mailing list. But we’ll continue to offer that feature, which you can sign up for at the bottom of this page. Feel free to subscribe, or unsubscribe, to either.
Also, as some of you may have noticed, we’ve started a GothamSchools Tumblr page that features bits of news from around the city and from our reporters’ notebooks. Soon we’ll be integrating the short-form news into our website, but for now you can follow it here.
Both of the big changes are part of an even broader set of improvements we’re planning to the way our wonderful readers can interact with GothamSchools. After five years of operation (this week!) we’re in the early stages of preparation for a new website design, and we are also working on new initiatives that will bring our reporters in contact with our readers even more often. We’ll be calling on you for specific advice about how to improve GothamSchools in the coming months — but feel free to start offering your two cents now!
