When the small Lakeland School District had the opportunity to develop
and publish a free professional Web site, the district moved quickly. Less than
two weeks after signing up to use School Loop’s free
content-management system, School Loop Standard, Lakeland already had its
brand-new district Web site up and running.
the new system, Lakeland’s district office and schools can assign publishing
rights to as many individuals as necessary to avoid “information bottlenecks,”
situations in which the Webmaster has more content to post than time to post
it. Educators can even provide students with publishing rights, allowing them
to gain experience in the 21st-century skill of managing Web content
while lightening the workload of school staff.
