The design and development of the site started several months ago under the direction of Supt. Henry Webb, the administrative team and the technology department.
According to the release, the school and central office department web pages can now be created and maintained by the principal and department directors, and the new site will also make it easier for visitors to access information while providing more interactive options.
“Technology has opened the doors to communication that we never thought possible,” Webb said. “In the coming weeks, the parent portal will be accessible and the public will have the capability of signing up to receive newsletters directly to their e-mail.”
The site also contains components to enhance student learning, provide parent information, increase opportunities for community involvement and building partnerships, and more. Officials expect the site to continue to grow as the new tools are utilized.
“The Floyd County School District is committed to increasing communication with all stake-holders,” Webb said. “We are excited about the added options this website will provide to our administrators, principals, teachers, students and to you, the community.”
The address of the new site is http://www.floyd.kyschools.us.
