Story of the Week 9/14

Every district that you’ll cover will have transportation issues.

These stories are easier said than done, in that, you have to find parents to tlak to.

It’s really tough to track them down, but, once you do, you’ll have your story.

The trick is to get both sides of the story. What does the district think? What does the school board say? Do the parents have a valid argument?

There are a lot of moving parts and you have to be aware that the stories aren’t going to make many people happy. It’s a stressful story. I have no problem admitting that.

You’re just trying to get the story out there.

New Lebanon policy keeps magnet school students off bus

This first story took me over a week to get ready for print.

The only reason I was able to get the second story in the paper was thanks to a school board meeting.

Parents seek answers on bus issue

Keep your head up and do your best.

That’s all your editors can ask for.
