Web Services → Support→ How to establish or update a Web site
The MCPS Web is all the publicly accessible Web content for district, school, and office pages.
The MCPS Web provides parents, staff, students, and the larger community with valuable information about and technical support for the academic, administrative, and operational aspects of the school system.
If you would like to establish a new site or need a rehaul of an existing site, the first step is to set up a meeting with Web Services. All new sites or sites that need rehauling are created in our web publishing system, Tron.
Whether you are establishing a new site or updating an exisiting site, the principal or other administrator should have the following:
When ready to proceed, administrators must request access to the Web server for their webmaster so the site can be made public. Only administrators may request Web accounts.
Web Services recommends that the administrator designate one primary webmaster for the school or office. The primary web master must be an MCPS employee. Multiple secondary webmasters may be designated.
If you are updating an existing site you most likely already have a webmaster. However, you may want to enlist other "content experts" to help with transition process from one site to another.
Please see the Web Regulation FAQ about requirements for all sites
A public Web site is an open form of communication with a wide audience that includes members of the community, county, and world. Principals and administrators ultimately are responsible for the content of publications.
