Today, Stew Dent, a junior at Oswego High School, debuted his most recent collection of work from his graphic design class. Dent has been attending school remotely since phase 25 began, and as a result, was issued a MacBook from the district in order to Adobe programs for his graphic design class.
After reviewing District 308’s plan to return to in-person school come early December, the 42Fifty Staff sees several flaws that need to be addressed in order for students and staff to be successful.
Of the two choices presented to the board and to Superintendent Dr. John Sparlin, 42Fifty supports the remote learning for all plan as it provides the highest and most equitable level of education across the board, while keeping students and teachers safe from risk of a major COVID-19 outbreak.
During mid-March, the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) evolved into a pandemic affecting families all across the world. This has left people having to adapt to working from home and students shifting to an online learning program. This outbreak has also left stores low on supplies such as food, toilet paper, and other appliances that people need to stay healthy while following government instituted quarantine.
Student editors are students who have exemplary writing, editing, and leadership skills. There are also some editorial positions that focus less on writing and more on artistic and/or technological skills. As leaders of the publication, it is essential that all student editors are approachable and have the ability to work well with their peers. While not required, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have some knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, etc.) or other digital editing programs.
