The Pitchfork is published biweekly.  Content of The Pitchfork represents only the views of the student staff and guest writers, not school officials.

The Pitchfork is a student-produced newspaper, published with the intent to inform, entertain, and give voice to the Rankin High School community, as well as to educate student journalists.  Each issue is an open public forum for student expression under the guidance of a faculty adviser.

Student journalists are provided with opportunities to investigate, inform, interpret, and to evaluate—all traditionally accepted functions of the press in America.

The Pitchfork staff is committed to reflect the mission statement set forth by Rankin High School.  The goals of the staff are to provide fair, accurate news and commentaries as well as to serve the interests of the school.

The Pitchfork will accept letters to the editor, guest articles, and suggestions from readers.  The editorial board reserves the right to withhold a letter or article if it contains material that is libelous, obscene, or disruptive of the school process.  Should a letter or article contain errors in fact, excessive grammatical errors, or be too long, it will be returned to the author for resubmission.

Advertising must conform to the guidelines set forth for editorials.  Publication of advertisements does not indicate an endorsement by RHS or by The Pitchfork staff.

All advertising rates are available upon request from any Pitchfork staff member or advisor.  The Pitchfork editorial board reserves the right to reject any ad.

Corrections will appear in the next issue.
