Yearbook Editorial Policy

 

Matador Yearbook Editorial Policy

The Matador is a student publication of our High School created by students, and we are not professionals. We attempt to provide an overview of the activities and student life of Seguin High School as well as a school photo for each student and faculty member. In doing so, we may make errors in the reporting of these activities and names. For all errors, we apologize. When errors are found prior to publication, they are corrected.

 

The Matador staff has adopted the following editorial/publishing  policy:

 

  • The staff of the Yearbook retains the right to choose content and to determine the priority of stories for its readers. Final decisions involving all written and pictorial content of the yearbook shall be made by the staff and adviser.

  • The Matador may be presented in a traditional or chronological book format to be determined by the staff.

  • The Matador will strive to present to cover as much of the student body as possible, giving coverage to as many clubs and organizations as possible.

  • The Matador will not discriminate against members of any group, be it minority or otherwise, in the amount of coverage, staff representation or any other manner.

  • The Matador will not cover student deaths in the yearbook regardless of cause of death, or time of death. If the parents, friends or family wish to purchase a student ad to commemorate their student, this will be allowed.

  • The Matador will not cover student deaths in the yearbook regardless of cause of death, or time of death. If the parents, friends or family wish to purchase a student ad to commemorate their student, this will be allowed.

  • If your student picture does not appear in the book, no refunds will be issued.

  • If your name is misspelled in the yearbook, please accept our apologies, however, no refunds or discounts will be provided.

  • The Matador will provide students an opportunity to proof their own names prior to publication by making proofs available to the student body outside of the Journalism room.

  • If the book is damaged in any way, a new book will be issued if there is no writing or markings of any kind in or on the book.

  • Student Ads: If a student's name is misspelled or there are any other discrepancies, there will be no refunds or discounts. All advertisers will receive a proof to approve content prior to publishing.

  • The yearbook staff is not responsible for lost or stolen books. We will not refund any money or issue a new book in this matter.
