Our role in the community is to inform, educate, and investigate the events occurring within Leland’s community and beyond. 3200 parents and students read the newspaper every issue. Our goal is to have stories read and talked about—and to have a positive impact on the community. 

Who We Are

We are a non-profit, student-run newspaper located at Leland High School, a member of the San Jose Unified School District (SJUSD) in San Jose, California. The Charger Account is produced by Leland High School's Advanced Journalism class and we publish six print issues throughout the academic school year. 

We submit our publication to the American Scholastic Press Association (ASPA) and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) annually.

In regards to our online presence, we have published our website in May of 2020 for the 2020 May Issue. We will strive to publish timely and relevant news articles in the future. We also have an Instagram @lelandchargeraccount and a Facebook page.
