Members of The Telegraph, Herriman High's school newspaper, broke the story of an ex-teacher at Herriman who is under investigation for misconduct. The story has since been featured on multiple news networks, including KUTV, and was posted by The Telegraph on their website Yesterday, January 18th.
Just as the story was gaining momentum and bringing views to the reader-starved Telegraph, in the dead of morning, on January 19th, Herriman Administrators deleted the story and took the website offline. No explanation was given to students, nor was a timeline of how long this ban would take effect.
In addition to removing the website, the school put a hold on all of The Telegraph's social media accounts so that no posts can be made. Student journalists were told all posts to social media and the website would have to approved by a vice principal in the future.
