Students are typically sent home with folders full of flyers, which often have information that can be easily found online.
Northville Public Schools has a green initiative to reduce its carbon footprint. All flyers from nonprofit organizations like parks and recreation, local scouts and the library will be available for viewing online.
The idea is to cut costs, reduce paper in students' backpacks and lessen the labor and expense of the district's staff.
