As Chalkbeat expands in Indiana and beyond, we want our coverage in each city to reach more people and reflect more diverse experiences with city schools. Our job as community editors, new positions we designed with these goals in mind, is to create more opportunities for in-person interaction between reporters, editors, and people who have firsthand experience with the school system.
Soon there will be community editors in all four bureaus. For now, we’re hard at work getting new projects off the ground in Denver and New York. Check out our descriptions of those projects, and keep an eye out for updates from an Indianapolis community editor in the near future.
