About Travis Rebel News

Travis Rebel News is the official student newspaper of William B. Travis High School.

This publication serves as an educational tool in the training of student journalists to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and viewpoints and to give coverage of newsworthy events directly related to the school, individual students, staff and organizations. Although students work under the guidance of a professional faculty member and former journalist, the content is determined by the student staff and reflects all areas of student interests including topics that may be dissent and controversial. Content reflects the views of the student staff and not of the administration or staff of William B. Travis High School or that of the Austin Independent School District.

The staff will work toward avoiding bias and/or favoritism. Members will make every effort to provide coverage that is timely, meaningful and interesting to its readers, and the articles will reflect objective reporting that incorporates a high standard of journalistic quality. Every effort will be made to avoid printing libel, obscenities, innuendo and material that threatens to disrupt the learning process or is an invasion of privacy. Electronic manipulations will be avoided that alter the truth of photographs without indicating that the photograph is an illustration.

Editorials are the opinions of the individual writers and do not necessarily represent the views of Travis Rebel News staff or the administration as a whole.

Travis Rebel News staff welcomes reader input.
