The Charger Account made the transition to an online model in 2012 after partnering with Santa Barbara’s premier online news source, Noozhawk.com.
Under the direction of English teacher and Charger Account advisor Kelly Savio, students enroll in our Journalism course which counts as a UC A-G elective course. The course meets daily--developing skills in such areas as: reporting, newswriting, features, photojournalism, and journalism ethics.
No previous journalism experience is necessary; however, students must have a positive attitude, be willing to work as a team, and be willing to spend some time outside of class covering events for the newspaper.
After stories are submitted and edited, they are posted on the paper's website. Students, parents, and the rest of the DP community have access to the content from the website, daily email subscriptions, and via the paper's facebook andtwitter feeds.
