High schools use websites to showcase everything from school functions, and atheltic events to school closings and school calendars.
High school in particular use websites to highlight students and their accomplishments. Accomplishments ranging from academic to athletic achivements; these sites are a great way for higher education to see visual evidence of such accomplishments.
Along with highlighting student accomplishments, high schools use websites to communicate with parents and students alike. Housing important academic documents and academic calendars. A new way these types of websites are communicating with parents is through Parent Portals, here parents can see test scores, progress reports and communicate directly with teachers and administration. Some sites also have a Student Portal which works the same way.
These sites are also a way for the school board to communicate with the school administration. Relaying important information such as emergencies and district wide closings.
