Terms of Use ▼

Email Frequency

We send email updates whenever new resources or opportunities are available in the interest areas that you requested.  On average, we send about one email update per month in each interest area, but the actual frequency of email updates may vary.  You may receive more frequent announcements from us if you have subscribed to more than one interest area, or if we release several resources within a single interest area in a short period of time.

The Family Involvement Network of Educators (FINE) Newsletter is generally distributed quarterly throughout the year.  We will occasionally send a bonus announcement to our FINE members to announce timely resources or opportunities relevant to family involvement.  In addition to resources and opportunities, we may send you very occasional invitations to participate in surveys.
