Welcome to Our New Website

on February 3, 2014

New website displayed on phoneThe Sharon Springs Central School District website has a fresh new face. This new site offers many of the same features visitors are used to — and more.

Some of the new features include:

  • Academics — Find important information, such as a link to the district’s NYS Report Card, Common Core Learning Standards, and the iPad program.
  • Calendar — The new website uses Google’s free calendar feature, enabling the district to add or change dates at any time. “Sync” the district’s dates with your own personal Google calendar.
  • Featured Photos  — The new site relies much more heavily on photos to accompany stories, including a homepage photo slideshow that will change at various points throughout the year.
  • Forms and Policies — A “one-stop shop” for forms and policies. Find everything from health and transportation forms to the most current student handbooks.
  • Parent Today — Parent Today is a free e-mail newsletter and companion website designed to help build a stronger bridge between families and the classroom. Each story is packed with research-based information that empowers parents and supports teachers.

Among its many features, the new design is “responsive,” meaning that the layout adapts to the visitor’s device (from smaller mobile phones to larger desktop computer monitors). It provides an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum need for resizing, panning, and scrolling.

“The goal of this new website is to be the best way for students, parents and community members to stay in the loop with school and district news and information,” said Superintendent Patterson Green. “We hope that it is an informative and user-friendly tool for all.”
