About Webmasters

Who may become a Webmaster?

Any MCPS staffer may become a webmaster if approved by her/his principal or administrator

How does a Webmaster receive access to servers?

Your principal or administrator can authorize your access by completing and signing MCPS Webmaster Account Request Form. This grants you access to the web and multimedia servers.

May a parent or student volunteer become a Webmaster?

Yes, but only under these conditions:

  • The principal or administrator approves.
  • They work under the direction of an MCPS staffer who act as the location’s primary webmaster.
  • They notify the webmaster of their departure when they complete their service so Web Services can disable their account.

What happens if a webmaster does not follow this regulation or related regulations?

The webmaster could lose publishing privileges and other disciplinary actions could be taken.

What do I do if I’m leaving my position as webmaster?

  • Tell your site manager (principal or supervisor), of course.
  • Assist your site manager with recruiting a new webmaster.
  • Ask your site manager to submit a Webmaster Account Request form notifying us that your account should be closed, and a new one created for the new webmaster.
  • Teach the new webmaster the ropes.
