Why Does Your School Need A Website?

The World Wide Web is one of the most effective communication technologies today. Developing an effective school website takes time and resources but if done right, the benefits to the school community are enormous:

  • A school website can expand opportunities for parents to communicate with the school and become more informed about their child (ren)'s education.
  • Teachers can use the website to share ideas with other teachers.
  • Websites can greatly eliminate barriers in involving parents in school and can help keep parents informed about upcoming events and activities.
  • Parents can provide feedback to teachers and to the school.
  • School website can serve as a platform for students’ performance evaluation and monitoring.

Some Possible Elements of a School Website

    • School Information - history, philosophy & staff.
    • Contact Information - phone, email & contact form.
    • School Updates - intra and inter-school events, announcements of upcoming parent-teacher conferences, and holidays.
    • Educational Resources - electronic books, teaching aids, journals and links to other useful websites, teaching materials & lesson plans.
    • Students performance monitoring and evaluation system
    • Result display platform
    • Interaction Opportunities - electronic discussion forums & blogs.
    • Family-School Connections - classroom WebPages, information about homework and suggestions on how parents can help at home.
    • Photographs & diaries from school trips (with parents permission).

A school website should not be perceived as replacement for face-to-face interactions, instead it should be viewed as an additional resource.
