    ESSENTIALS

    • Check your deadlines for cover and endsheets.
    • If spreads are being created without a consistent set of fonts or design templates, HALT. Don’t make more work for your staff. Set ground rules before you get too far.
    • Done with picture day? On to club picture day. Go to LearnYBK.com to find the plan in People and Index.
    • Don’t forget fall sports teams. Get coaches or other players you know or have on your staff to help identify the players.
    • Make sure every page or spread has a folio.
    • Are your staffers keeping up with who’s doing what? Remember: All stories and photos need bylines.

     
    NEXT LEVEL

    • Set up character styles and make sure your whole staff knows how to use them consistently. Make a chart and put it on the wall so everyone can see.
    • Kick off all that senior hoopla before seniors “check out.” Get ads, superlatives — if you do those — and senior features done before they become scarce.
    • Your next-level book pricing may go into effect soon. Make sure to have a big sales push before it does.

     
    EXPERT

    • Check in with your staffers. Make sure teams are getting along.
    • Have you promoted your business and parent ad deadlines? You’ll probably need to do this more than once.
