Local News

The Palo Alto Weekly is the definitive source of news coverage about our district.  It provides consistent, detailed and thoughtful coverage of current events, as well as in-depth features and investigative pieces on relevant topics. In addition, it has a vibrant “Town Square” discussion area that includes a subarea about school and education topics.

The Peninsula edition of the San Jose Mercury News, through its daughter publication the former Palo Alto Daily News, is also a useful news source that maintains high editorial standards.  Because it is a daily publication, however, it sometimes lacks the depth of coverage or contextual awareness found in the Weekly.
