Managing deadlines in yearbook is hard, especially when you make a large book for a large school! My school does a 256 pg book, which is not the largest I've seen, but it is pretty big. I have a staff of anywhere between 13-20 kids of which I have between 2-5 on my editorial staff.
This plan talks about a 3 week deadline plan with the 4th week being for editors and advisers to do final corrections before submission. It also talks about what, how, and when to grade portions of the deadlines. There are no rubrics included here, but I do have another product that has some of the rubrics and other materials that I use.
