About

SacSchoolsBeat.com is the website of the Student Education Reporter program, an effort funded by the Sacramento County Office of Education. This program trains Sacramento County high school students to become education reporters for their schools and districts to help compensate for the current shortage of professional education reporters and subsequent lack of coverage of schools and education in the region.

Student reporters produce a minimum of one story a month throughout the academic year that are accepted for publication. The student reporters are paid a $1200 stipend each academic year.

Each student reporter works with a writing coach (a professional journalist or educator who act as coach, mentor, instructor and editor) throughout the year. All stories produced by students are provided free to local professional media outlets. The goal of this program is to increase media coverage of local Sacramento County schools and districts to benefit the students, the parents and educators.
