Scot Scoop News

About Us

Founded in 2010, Scot Scoop News is a student-run journalism website by the students of Carlmont High School’s journalism classes. All articles published are written by staff members or the site editors. Content on Scot Scoop is managed, reviewed, and maintained by the site editors.

Vision: Scot Scoop News will be a safe, reliable, and well-known news source for Carlmont High School. The content will be chosen and approved by the students as an open forum, but the editors have the final say. Scot Scoop News will only hide information when specified. All articles will be reviewed by a site editor before published. Anonymous sources will be used in situations in which the content is private and or personal. The anonymous source will not be revealed to anybody, except the site editor-in-chief. Scot Scoop News will provide an open forum and contact forum for public expression, but comments will not be immediately published in the forum until it is approved by the site editor-in-chief.

Mission: Our newspaper, The Highlander, is published eight times a year and offers a deliberative mix of reporting, analysis, criticism, and commentary. Scot Scoop News, our website, delivers real-time reporting, giving Scot Scoop News a vital presence in the ongoing conversation about the media. Staff members and editors use a variety of tools and methods to produce, edit, and publish content. Throughout its website, Scot Scoop News has an open forum and contact forum for public expression. Scot Scoop News uses its open forums, email subscription, Facebook page, Twitter account, YouTube page, and Instagram account to update and engage with the public.
