Fair Use Question- School Newspaper

Hi,
 
I was wondering if I, in a high school newspaper (nonprofit, educational, free circulation to limited audience [students, teachers] on campus) can have a current events section where we publish leads and sections of articles from NYTimes Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and other professional news sources without getting prior permission?
 
Does this constitute fair use?

The purpose for having a current events section is so we can educate the students about things that are happening in the world. Of course we will give proper citations (Such as associated press, or NYtimes)

What are "leads and sections of articles" exactly?
