Student journalists on the El Rodeo staff will make every effort to publish following the legal definitions of libel, obscenity, and invasion of privacy. Consistent with California Education Code section 48907, the staff will refrain from printing material that may incite students, be a violation of school regulations or disrupt school operations. At the beginning of each semester, journalism students will be reminded of the legal, financial, and ethical implications of each article they write.

The adviser El Rodeo will supervise production and offer advice and instruction to help the staff meet professional standards of English and journalism and to maintain the provisions as required by CALIFORNIA EDUCATION CODE SECTION 48907.

Ed Code 48907 affirms the right of high school newspapers to publish whatever they choose, so long as the content is not explicitly obscene, libelous, or slanderous.  Also, there shall be no prior restraint of material prepared for official school publications except insofar as it violates this section.
