2 Sheboygan high school newspapers go all-digital

2 Sheboygan high schools doing away with printed versions of newspapers, switching to online

Two Sheboygan County high schools are doing away with printed versions for their newspapers, instead opting for online versions that will save money and reach more people.

Sheboygan Press Media reported the switch is being made at Sheboygan North and South high schools.

The move at South High means discontinuing the second-longest continuously running printed high school newspaper in the state.

Administrators at both schools said the online version will provide a better real-world experience and have broader reach. They also said it will save on printing costs. For example, North High printed four issues last year at a cost of $300 to $500 per edition.

North High journalism teacher Jamie Nusbaum said she’ll miss the printed version and how students would read and talk about it.
