DHS Media

About

DHS Media is the online home of Deerfield High School’s student newspaper Deerprints and its student television station DHS-TV.  Both programs operate autonomously but share an editorial vision under the DHS-TV Executive Producer and the Deerprints Editor-in-Chief.  Brett Schwartz teaches both courses and advises each program, including www.dhsmedia.org and all DHS-TV broadcasts and  the DHS-TV YouTube channel.

DEERPRINTS’ MISSION

To provide the Deerfield High School community with the most relevant news content in a timely and professional manner.  Articles published in Deerprints are written and edited by the students of DHS, with the input of our faculty adviser, Brett Schwartz.  Student editors make all content decisions.  Deerprints is a designated public forum, and our Perspectives section publishes student and staff opinions in the forms of articles, letters to the editor and editorials.

OPINIONS IN DEERPRINTS

The opinions expressed in Deerprints are those of the writer and may not necessarily reflect that of the Deerprints editorial board, staff members, DHS faculty and administration, or community.  Our Perspectives section is clearly branded as the principal opinion forum for Deerprints.  Editorials are written by the members of the Deerprints editorial board and are decided upon by majority vote.

DHS-TV’s MISSION

As the single platform for video broadcasts at DHS, we strive to produce content that is both informative and entertaining to our high school community audience.  We carefully balance our programming to honor broadcast journalism and student news, but also take pride in showcasing the creative talents of our students working as filmmakers and video producers.

WEBSITE COMMENTS

Deerprints and DHS-TV reserve the right to monitor online commenting and ensure that trolling and comments that are inciteful or prejudicial in any way are not made public.

FOR THE RECORD

Request for corrections can be made by submitting comments directly to the published story.  We will gladly post these comments in order to enhance the integrity of our journalism and the overall site.
