Many districts now are improving their communications with sub-sites through Brick River.

Costs

$5,000 for the project. That's usually less than $1K per district.
The projects entail creating one core-level layout that's used by all the districts but the districts can vary in terms of logo, banner image, color palette, and content.

Then it's $50/month/district site
