Newspapers in Education

NIE Guides

What is NIE?

Through The News-Gazette in Education program, local educators can receive curriculum materials and classroom sets of The News-Gazette for FREE, thanks to the support of our Educational Partners. All we ask is that you receive a minimum of FIVE newspapers per delivery. We'll deliver the quantity of papers you request to your school. Just contact NIE Manager Bob Cicone, Jr at nie@news-gazette.com.

The News Gazette is now an all morning delivery newspaper. School bundles will be delivered by 6:00am to all schools who order NIE newspapers.
