Recently, the Iowa City Community School District began replacing all of the district websites. Each school has a webmaster, and individuals across the district build new sites for their specific schools. Judith Dickson, a social studies teacher at City High, worked with Kristin Pedersen, the ICCSD Coordinator of Community Affairs, to create the City High website.
“It was time to go to a different platform with better conductivity and technologies to use,” Dickson said.
Each website has been replaced with blackboard, a learning management system. The district placed certain protocol and requirements for each website.
“It is very important to the district that everyone be consistent throughout the whole district,” said Dickson.
Each school website has a very similar format. Since the previous website is still popping up, students are having difficulties with accessing the new website, which can be found through the new district link. The old website is beginning to redirect consistently.
The new website has may different categories and has several links for students.
“I think our website is a little more clear,” said Dickson. “There are different categories that are very obviously spaced out.”
The website also has a calendar and the school announcements available on the front page.
“Right now, there are no more features to be added,” said Dickson. “Maybe in the fall we’ll start to expand a little bit more and try to add some more features.”
