This is NOT a Wrightslaw "Alert." Today we want to thank you for your encouragement and support during the past year.

How many times have files been downloaded from Wrightslaw since the site opened in March 1998? Take a guess -- 10,000? 100,000? 1 million?

Nope.

Between March 1998 and December 1999, Wrightslaw had nearly 3 million "hits"! (2,903,261 accesses as of 12/22/99)

Nearly 10,000 people subscribe to The Special Ed Advocate -- an increase of 300% in 1999.

Netscape ranks Wrightslaw as one of the top 50,000 sites in the world.

As we reflect on these staggering figures, we want to thank you for making 1999 a more successful year than we imagined possible.


Where do They Come From?

Have you ever wondered who else is wandering through the stacks at Wrightslaw? You come from every state in the union. You come from many countries -- from Antigua, Argentina, Austria, Australia, and Zimbabwe.

This week, we've had visitors from Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Finland, France, Croatia (Hrvatska), Hungary, Israel, Italy, India, Japan, Mexico, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Thailand, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and South Africa.


Progress In 1999, Plans For 2000

In 1999, WRIGHTSLAW: SPECIAL EDUCATION LAW was published (newsletter subscribers received advance notice and a pre-publication discount). The success of this book surpassed our expectations. WRIGHTSLAW: SPECIAL EDUCATION LAW is now in its second printing.

NOTE: Learn more about WRIGHTSLAW: SPECIAL EDUCATION LAW

Order this book and our new ADVOCACY PAK from the Wrightslaw store

We're working on TWO new books. We'll post progress reports on our Publications and Projects page -

The first CREATIVE SOLUTIONS CONTEST was a huge success. Watch your mailbox -- we'll announce a new Creative Solutions Contest soon. A new Creative Solutions Contest will help you cope with post-holiday, wintertime blues.


Send Your Ideas & Suggestions

We can't imagine how many files you'll download in 2000, but we'll continue to add cases, articles and features to the Wrightslaw site.

To further our goal of serving you better, we ask that you send ideas and suggestions about how we can improve the Wrightslaw site and / or information that you'd like us to add.

Send your ideas and suggestions to the special email address for site ideas and suggestions -

ideas@wrightslaw.com

Your messages will come straight to us -- and we promise to read every email. We'll post some of your suggestions on the Wrightslaw site.

Happy holidays!
