ANNUAL REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY
2011 Annual Report to the Community -- Peel District School Board, Mississauga, ON ... "Superb, intuitive navigation in a clean, appealing, easy-reading layout offers easily digested copy 'chunks' packed with illustrations, charts, graphs and photos -- and plenty of links and opportunities to give feedback. Very effective, and very hard to ignore -- which is the whole point."
