The Feather has had numerous student webmasters over the years since its web beginnings in 2001 and is currently working on another redo. The Feather Online 2014-15 editors are currently working on a new website with adviser Greg Stobbe, photojournalism advisor Kori Friesen and new IT director Robert Hyatt. The hope is to debut it for next school year.
The goal of the staff is to reflect, represent, inform and engage the student body through the campus news, features, profiles and sports activities. The staff also seeks to provide a forum for editorials, columns and letters to the editor.

Additionally, community events and places of interest will be covered when found applicable to student concerns. Slideshows, videos, podcasts, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook are now mainstream parts of the daily edition.
