Using the District Logo
District 49’s website, located at D49.org, received an upgrade during the 2014 summer break. As part of the website development process, District 49’s logo also got refreshed. To remain fiscally responsible, the district is implementing an extended phase-in, phase-out period. As materials with the previous logo are expended or wear out, use the new logo. Faculty are instructed to not spend money to replace usable items simply to apply the new logo design.
