SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Two Sheboygan County high schools are doing away with printed versions for their newspapers, instead opting for online versions that will save money and reach more people.

A Sheboygan Press Media report says the switch is being made at Sheboygan North and South high schools.

The move at South High means discontinuing the second-longest continuously running printed high school newspaper in the state.

Administrators at both schools say the online version will provide a better real-world experience and have broader reach. They also say it will save on printing costs. For example, North High printed four issues last year at a cost of $300 to $500 per edition.

North High journalism teacher Jamie Nusbaum says she'll miss the printed version and how students would read and talk about it.
