Moffat County School District updates Web site
Vicki Duncan used to feel guilty about using reams of paper to make copies to update school policy.
But the secretary to the superintendent of the Moffat County School District doesn’t feel that way anymore, now that the information is available on the district’s Web site.
“Before, it would take me a whole day to make copies (to update policy changes),” Duncan said. “After they were sent out, I realized they may not even been getting utilized because people were too busy to update them.”
In an effort to better answer public inquires, the district has updated its Web site to include curriculum, policy, job openings, class reunion updates, budgetary information and schedules, said Wayne Wright, the district’s network administrator. The site also offers an online version of the high school’s student newspaper, the Post Script, links to each of the district’s schools, staff phone numbers and information for high school students about planning for college.
Marlene Knez, the district’s software specialist, said the site is in its first phase and eventually may be used to access students’ grades and course homework.
District officials have changed the site largely to cater to parent and teacher requests.
Web site updates also are a district goal to improve communication, Knez said.
Wright said he began work on the Web site almost two years ago. He said he could devote more time to the site, except that his first priority is to keep the district’s 1,300 computers running.
Wright said he plans on adding information to the site.
“We tried to make the front page more friendly,” he said. “We just keep adding more things as requested.”
