Ken - P.S. -- See if the school has any ability (and better yet, an established practice!) to record video of student-related events... I'm thinking of my 5-year old son's Kindegarten Christmas concert that they put on, and how cute it would be to see a brief clip of one or two songs they did on up on the website! If you could establish a space for these types of items, and establish a regular/routine practice (and incumbent person with responsibilty for carrying it out, someone hopefully with some basic video camera skills) of capturing these events for posterity, it'd make a WAY COOL web site...!

It's been a good 6 months or so since I last followed thelist (new jobs will do that to a person), but I once again find myself in a situation where I could use some of evolt's collective knowledge. (I've been keeping up with web dev in my spare time, but that's no substitute for doing it professionally. I've got some catching up to do!) But anyway, back on topic... Do any of you know of any good elementary school websites? Those of you with children in primary or elementary school -- what would you *like* to see in a school website? Obviously anything a school can do to foster communication between the parent, school, teacher, and student is our primary focus. We're putting all forms and applications, student records, homework assignments, etc. online. I just can't help but feel that we're overlooking some things.
