Process for Copyok Announcement-Flyer Requests

  • All announcements should only be sent to Copyok, with no cc’s to a school site.  After the announcement has been reviewed and approved, the announcement will be forwarded by Copyok to the appropriate school site(s)
  • For announcements that submitters want run more than one week, submitters must submit their request weekly to Copyok, along with the announcement . 
  • The announcement that the submitter provides must be the final wording of the announcement that is to be placed in the newsletters.  Any corrections submitted later will only be made if time permits.           
  • Announcements should be submitted in the below format: 
    –  Single-spaced
    –  Regular font, not italicized
    –  All left-justified (including caption)
    –  Only caption to be bolded
    –  columns must be in Tables or tabs set properly (not tab overs)
  • Turn-around time for approval and distribution of a “standard” announcement is two days.  However, if there are portions of an announcement that are unclear or cannot be approved, it may take longer because other members of the Copyok Team may need to be consulted and may not be readily available.
