Austin American-Statesman E-Edition

What is the Statesman’s e-Edition?
The e-edition is an exact replica of the Austin American-Statesman in electronic form. It differs from in that you can page through the entire newspaper on-line just like the printed version you receive at your door step.

What "perks" does the e-edition offer?

  • Access to the last 30 days of editions
  • Ability to have articles translated into over 50 languages
  • Print, e-mail or save articles of interest
  • Search for articles and photos by keyword and ads by keyword or category
  • It's a great way to "Go Green"

How do I share the e-edition with my students?

  • Project articles to your class from your computer
  • Allow your students to work individually on computers at school
  • Have your students work on assignments on their home computer or at their local library

How much does the e-edition cost?
Thanks to generous donations from our newspaper subscribers and local businesses there is no cost to teachers who want to use the Statesman e-edition in their classroom.

Who is eligible to receive access to the e-edition through Newspapers In Education?
Our program is open to teachers who want to use the electronic edition of the Statesman as a teaching tool in their classroom. Teachers in the following counties are eligible: Bastrop, Bell, Blanco, Burleson, Burnet, Caldwell, Comal, Fayette, Gillespie, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Hays, Lampasas, Lee, Llano, Mason, Milam, San Saba, Travis and Williamson.

Will I need to order a user name and password for each student?
When you sign up for the e-edition you will only receive one user name and password to access the e-edition. You will want to order access, though, for your largest class size. This will allow you to sign that many students on at one time using the same user name and password. For example, if you order 25 licenses you can have 25 computers signed on to the electronic edition all at the same time. Even if you only plan on projecting articles from one computer in your classroom, sign up for a class size, as that is how many students will be viewing the Statesman.

How do I change my classroom login codes to access e-Paper?

What is the Verify Access page?
At the end of each semester, we will send you an e-mail letting you know that it is time to verify your classroom access to the e-edition for the access you are receiving. It’s a quick and easy process! Also, if the new registration window is open for the next school year you will have the opportunity to pre-register. Your account must always be verified and up to date before you will be able to register for the next year.

Why do I need to verify access?
NIE must receive verification of access from teachers each semester due to our auditing regulations. Because we must demonstrate to outside auditors that our sponsored newspaper access actually reaches children and learning adults, we require teachers to use our quick online verification process. Without these confirmations, NIE would not be able to provide no-cost newspaper access to schools.
