The North Star Publication Policy:

The North Star is a student-produced website and publication that operates as an open forum for student expression. The North Star accepts signed letters to the editor. If you wish to submit a letter to the editor, please attach the letter to the editor in an email to the adviser. If a student, community member, or parent wishes to submit an anonymous letter, he/she must attend a conference with the advisor and the Editor-in-Chief to determine if it is necessary to keep the writer’s name out of print. The Editor-in-Chief also reserves the right to edit letters for grammar and length.

If a source wishes to remain anonymous to the readers of The North Star, he/she must reveal his/her identity to the reporter and the Editor-in-Chief. The North Star will cover controversial issues objectively and may express a staff opinion in the form of an editorial. The Editor-in-Chief writes the editorial based on the opinion of the full editorial board.

The opinions expressed herein do not necessarily represent those of Naperville North High School or Naperville District 203.

The North Star received the Online Pacemaker Award in 2013.
