The Black & White online
The Black & White online is the online counterpart to the Black & White, the independent student-run newspaper of Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland. Since its founding in 2002, the Black & White online has acted as an open forum for student journalism and expression, with the goal of informing the Whitman community about local events in a timely fashion by providing updates every day of the academic school year. All content is reviewed to ensure that it meets the highest levels of legal and ethical standards with respect to material that is libelous, obscene or invasive of privacy. Accuracy is of utmost importance to the Black & White staff.
Signed opinion pieces reflect the positions of the individual staff member. Opinion pieces do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Walt Whitman High School or Montgomery County Public Schools.
The Black & White encourages readers to submit opinions on relevant topics in the form of letters to the editor. Letters must be signed to be printed, though names will be withheld upon request. The Black & White reserves the right to edit letters for content and space. Letters to the editor may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subscriptions for the 2011-2012 school year include the Black & White. Students and staff can pick up the paper free of charge. Mail subscriptions cost $25. If you would like to purchase a subscription, please contact email@example.com.

In order to make the Black & White online a safe and secure public forum for members of the community to express their opinions, we read all comments before publishing them.
