Pick the track that best suits your staff. We offer a variety of options including: BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED and the GO FOR IT! tracks. Coverage during your track session will include items such as ladder planning, theme development, staff organization, time management, yearbook trends, etc.
New to Yearbook? or just trying to enhance your current book? The Beginner/Intermediate track will help you with cover design, caption and headline writing, as well as yearbook production and deadlines. Beginner is best if you have a brand new staff. Try Intermediate if you just need a refresher on the essentials.
Ready to make BIG changes to improve your current book? The advanced track is geared toward schools that create their book at a competitive level and have an advanced understanding of trending design, captions and writing. If your staff has mastered the fundamentals, or you have a seasoned staff with a competitive edge the Advanced track is the right one for you.
The “Go For It!” Track has an additional cost involved. This sequence is designed specifically for those staffs that are positioned for and aspire to producing the highest levels of journalistically focused yearbooks. Following the guidelines and trends set by the two national press associations, “Go For It!” Advanced sessions will be led by two nationally recognized yearbook authorities whose publications programs have been critically acclaimed. Specialized training that will empower staffs to “kick it up” a notch will be provided by these two instructors.
The cost per staff is $850 to provide this intensive instructional learning and production environment. The Go For It! $850 cost is in addition to the base cost of $350 per student or adviser. Enrollment will be limited to 10 staffs with no more than 8 staff members and one adviser per staff. A staff having more than 9 registrants will be charged $125 per additional attendee. This charge will be added to the original $850 staff charge (i.e. if a staff has nine students the Go For It! fee will be $975 and so on).
