Developing media editorial policies makes for good start to the year


As scholastic media staffs begin their year, there really is no more important strategy  than developing a strong editorial policy, for print and digital media.

For a good model print policy, see JEA’s model editorial policy.

For an excellent policy model that combines print and digital media, see JEA Digital Media’s article on collapsing multiple editorial policies (and not just newspaper) into one.

As Aaron Manful says in his article, “school programs should not be seen as individual mediums, but as a media program.”

Whatever the future brings for scholastic journalism, a good way to anticipate it is with a strong, unified policy that empowers all student media staffs with final content decisions.
