The apprentices also learned about the editorial management software the editor uses to upload breaking news text and photographs to New Market Press's multi-state newspaper website.
A draft story about the students newsroom visit was written by the students and Eagle staffers and placed on the website at www.denpubs.com under the banner heading "newspapers". The story appeared on both The Eagle and Rutland Tribune landing pages for the students and public to view.
The apprenticeship program's mission statement requires students to sign contracts to meet various goals which include news writing, writing style, teamwork, work responsibility and self direction. The students will also manage the creation of two new school publications, according to Carter.
