Free Web site a boon for Idaho district

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.

Under 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.
