Assignments: February 6 through February 18

NOTE: Beat assignments are not exclusive, that is, citizen journalists may attend or monitor any additional areas, depending on their interest and available time. So if your name doesn’t appear where you expected it to, please feel free to attend and report on any event or beat in which you are interested. We’ll reconfirm beat assignments at the February 18 staff meeting.

RE: iPads: All three iPads have now been updated to the newest system software and have a common set of applications and settings so that any Citizen Journalist can use any of the iPads for posting headlines and articles. Mr. Davis now has all three iPads and will be contacting youth over the next week or so to make them available for covering beats. Contact Mr. Davis if you have a particular project or event for using one of the iPads.

If you know of other events that should be listed or that you will be covering, send information by email to helpdesk@seseattlefreedomnet.org
