Photo Books are personal books and not related to any school yearbook. The school or yearbook editors will not be involved in Photo Books for the school community.
The option for Photo Books can't be disabled by anyone at the school. Chief Editors do have the option to allow Photo Books notifications or disable them. If the notification is turned off it means that your school community will not be made aware of photo books or receive periodic promotional emails.
Note: Photo Books must have a minimum of 20 pages and no more than 412 pages.
