What is your school district's Web Page Policy?

Before you begin or revise your website, it is a good idea to review your district's web page policy.  If your school district does not have a policy in place here are some of the most important guidelines to keep in mind:

  • Obey copyright laws

  • Post only school-related information

  • Update the website at least once each quarter

  • Proof for grammar and spelling errors

  • Pages with links that leave your district web space should include a disclaimer such as:
    "All external links are intended for educational purposes only. The ____ School District is not responsible for questionable or controversial content that may be found through links external to this site."

  • Student work should be identified by first names only

  • Do not publish any student contact information

  • Do not name students in photographs unless prior parental approval is granted

  • Provide contact information

  • Provide a date for the last update

  • Include a link to the district webpage and your school's webpage
