Rochester school district launches new Web site

The Rochester City School District on Tuesday unveiled a revamped Web site with a new format designed to be more user-friendly, district officials said. In the coming weeks, the district also is slated to roll out new sites for its schools.
In an online survey about the old site, users indicated frustration with static, out-of-date information and confusing, difficult-to-navigate pages, school officials said. The new site was developed with improved features that address these and other concerns.
“The new Web site moves us light years ahead in our communication with parents and others seeking information about the district,” said Jean-Claude Brizard, superintendent. “Our goal was to streamline the site and make it a more appealing, informative, user-friendly tool for visitors. We hope people will turn to it as a reliable means of getting information and staying informed of the work we are doing to support student achievement.”
The site will include searchable board of education policies and resolutions, e-alerts for visitors and information frequently requested by parents including dates, contact information and documents.
Sites for individual schools will allow teachers to post information specific to their classrooms like projects and homework assignments that can be accessed by students and parents.
The site’s address, at www.rcsdk12.org, remains the same.
