Dealing with student deaths in the yearbook can be a delicate subject
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
What exactly is the best policy for handling the yearbook coverage of students who die during the year?
As the article points out, there are many different ways the situation can be handled. Some staffs approach every student death with a “journalistic bent” and write an obituary for all students who die. Other staffs leave the decision up to family wishes. Many staffs allow for ad space to be used as tribute pages to the students.
