As classrooms move toward blended learning or the flipped classroom, the teacher's webpage can play a big part in “after school” help for students and parents.

The webpage, either classroom- or grade-level, can be designed to include numerous items that are helpful to parents, community members, and students. It provides a place for parents to go after hours to view information about homework assignments, calendar of events, classroom pictures, study links, and more.

As a webmaster, I am often asked “What do I put on a classroom webpage?” Below are suggestions to use for designing a classroom webpage that fits the needs of your school and classroom.
