City Schools Student Media Team

 
Every day our students accomplish and shine in ways that the public never gets to see. Letting students take the lead in sharing positive stories from their schools, communities, and lives will have a significant impact on Baltimore City Public Schools and the city as a whole.  As members of the City Schools Student Media Team, these students will serve as hosts for district TV shows and reporters for stories, and create original programming.  Each month student reporters will meet as a team for professional development with industry experts, honing their craft as reporters, videographers, photographers, and writers.
