D 17 Scorecard

D17 Scorecard is now a digital only publication. Until now it arrived in your mail as a newspaper. In a lot of ways it is now much easier to read. You can skip to any article that interests you. It is completely portable, so you can read it on your computer, tablet, or cell phone.

District 17 now has both an Apple and Android "app" for ScoreCard.  Load this free application and get instant access to the current edition of ScoreCard, the D17 bi-monthly magazine.
