School News is a WTIP feature that airs during North Shore Morning and North Shore Digest weekdays during the school year. Students gather news about the happenings and activities in their school, create a news report, and then record the report which is broadcast on WTIP.

Every week students from all the schools in Cook County report School News. In the photo to the left Great Expectation students gather around microphones to record a song for School News.

In the photo to the right Great Expectations students report School News on the second day of school, Sept. 7, 2011.
