The CD-ROM makes the letters easy to modify to fit your own situations.

This book is an amazing resource. The CD gives you great control over the content and its usability. If you have ever had a hard time just starting a memo or letter, this is a resource you can definitely use. If you dread writing letters or just need an idea for a communication tool/method/content, this is a must-have for any educator.

This book comes with the CD version of all of the sample letter so that you do not have to type a letter from the book. It is an excellent resource, for as a Principal, I write multiple letters and emails.

My district superintendent recommended this resource during a meeting. It has every type of memo or letter an administrator would need to write. The DVD component allows you to easily cut and paste. Saves me time, which we know is at a premium for any administrator or educator.

Good book to have as a reference point. Only problem, there are not enough elementary school level letters for school administrators. This needs to be corrected in order for the book to become GREAT!
