Site Council September 23, 2006Posted by Michael McVey in Online Tools.
A few weeks back, I cast my name into the hat as a candidate for the site council at my daughter’s middle school. Yesterday I heard the news that I had won the election but that the other two candidates had tied for second place.
I would hate to see one of the volunteers walk away from the site council when she came so close. I recommended a co-representative position so they could both be involved.
My first goal would be to get the daily bulletin from the Principal’s office distributed via e-mail. I visit the school’s web pages frequently enough, but I am not in the habit of checking the newsletter. As a result, we found out about Photo Day when my daughter called from the school asking what she should do about paying for photos.
I think the school could use technology a little more wisely but they are giving the students great exposure as webmasters. One thing I noted when I went to visit their page was that the Site council itself had no page. Time to fix that and then we can disseminate through the web minutes of meetings of interest to a sum of six people.
