About NIE

Teachers, give your students the world at their fingertips, at no cost to you!

Cox Media Group provides the best journalism in the Valley and our NIE program strives to promote literacy through readership, at no cost to participating classroom teachers.

Today’s students want immediate news and entertainment in a digitized format using the latest software, and that’s what NIE offers, with complete access to the Dayton Daily News, Springfield News-Sun, Journal-News and other resources.

NIE provides subject-specific lesson plans for every grade level that are compatible with the state of Ohio Standards.

Our NIE program is entirely funded through sponsorship from advertisers. Access to the digital ePaper is available to all school teachers who request it.
