A school web portal is a wonderful communication tool. There are so many ways in which schools can use a Web site to enhance classroom instruction and promote communication. You may ask ‘Is a school Web site worth the time and expense’? Yes! It’s absolutely worth it. A school Web site is an excellent way to promote the positives of your school. Having pride in your school and wanting to share that pride should be the driving force behind building any school Web site.
