Increasing Efficiency with Web-Based Communication Tools
Sheppard, Michael; Strasburger, Tom
School Business Affairs, v77 n3 p34-35 Mar 2011
Increasing workloads and decreasing budgets have left school district staff struggling to handle all their responsibilities, and regular communication across the district and into the community often suffers. Information may be delayed, inconsistent, or simply ranked low on the priority lists of busy administrators. Even transmitting information via email, which is traditionally considered a speedy process, can prove cumbersome. Using online systems to simplify or even automate tasks, such as sharing district alerts and notification and submitting reports, significantly enhances the efficiency and accuracy of these communications. This article describes the advantages of using web-based services and illustrates how online systems provided Berea City School District in Ohio and its educators with more time and better access to the information needed to create the best possible learning environment for students.
