Communiqué is changing to better meet the needs of our readers. We're posting digital content in the new online magazine on a regular basis, rather than producing just two magazines each year. 
You can find the new Communiqué at

The new format launched Sept. 9 with features on the new JA Discovery Center, the revamped SAT and PSAT, school nutrition news, and a new look for one of our high schools. The latest posts include a focus on E-SPLOST, TOTYs and teacher awards, Constitution Week, and the name of a new school, plus Bulletin Board and calendar items. Check the magazine frequently for the latest news!
