Below are some of the reasons why your business needs a professionally done School Website
Communication is the key to all successful relationships as it leads to understanding and surely the same goes for schools. It is important to have a clear communications channel between the school’s administration, its teachers and the students and their parents.
By having a user-friendly website, you will allow easy navigation for students, parents and the staff. Parents will be able to see the progress of their children by viewing the information regarding the classes, grades, assignments, attendance, and any extracurricular activities. This information can be available online from anywhere, anytime. The messages between the teachers and parents can be provided as well so they can communicate without personal meetings in school and, therefore, saving time for all the parties.
There are times when due to some reason the school needs to remain closed. It can be due to unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather or unrest. In such cases, a website can come in really handy as the administration can update the school’s website to let everyone know about the situation and update on the status of the building being open or closed.
If the school is having a sports day or any other event, then it will be easy to put it on the website for everyone to view. By integrating social media links and creating social accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Google plus…) for the schools that are managed by the administration, you can expand your reach and make it even easier for everyone to communicate with each other.
If you wish to improve the quality of your school’s services, then the best way to do that is listening to the feedback from students and their parents. By having a suggestion form on your website for anyone to fill and submit, you will allow parents and students to give you valuable advice and suggestions on the areas where your school might be lacking.
Feedback is a great way to find out about the effectiveness of any new services, rules ,or regulations.
Everybody wants their brand image to be positive and you can get by taking the time and care to update a website and provide information to the community. You also may be marketing your website online, and an interactive site can make sure that when people come to your website, they see your school in the best light.
If your school has its own website, you will have an instant online brochure. The authority would not need to fret about print or TV advertisements to promote the institution. There is also no need to print notices, announcements, letters for parents and other members of the school body. Therefore, teachers can save time on useless department tasks.
One of the modern impression nowadays is that if a company has an official website, then it’s credible. However, that doesn’t mean your school isn’t credible because it doesn’t have a website yet. It’s just an opinion of many people today. So, to a certain degree, having a website can enhance your school’s credibility immensely. Though, for that to really happen, your website must contain an About Us page. On that page is where you should talk about your school’s history, origin, and notable achievements. Also, don’t forget to emphasize the school’s contact details and location address.
Furthermore, an analysis by Stanford University implies that 75% of visitors assess an organization’s credibility based on the design of their site. So, include it in your checklist to make the website’s aesthetic presentable.
