Schools are the basic and the fundamental where the life of almost every person begins to transforms, and they begin to learn about the world more and more and how the things work. The schools are the knowledge temple of the human civilization. With the current trend and scenario of the world, students and their parents should get a continual track of the performance, attendance, and other curriculum stuff.
Due to such a large number of students enrolled in each school, it is quite difficult for the schools to be able to provide the parents with all the information that they need. So, this is met by the availability of the website. Almost all the schools have a website for their students and parents.
In the school, website there is a different login for the teachers and students from where both can access their performance and attendance. Having a website can be very helpful for schools and can reduce a lot of extra efforts that otherwise, they need to invest. Just maintaining a database and updating it will work.
Apart from the currently enrolled students and teachers, having a school website will also help other students and teachers who might be looking for your school and may need some information be it alumni records, school gallery or other function records and other records relevant to them. There are many plentiful reasons for the same. So, in order to better understand it, let us have a look at all of them one by one.
1. Keep an update to the parents and students
In the current time, the parents of most of the students are quite a bit very conscious about the performance and attendance and behavior of their ward. But with a large number of students enrolled in the schools, it becomes quite difficult for the schools to make a record of it on the papers.
You can keep it recorded on the online or computer database. And parents can access all the required data simply by logging in with required credentials.
There are many automated systems now available, and they help in the data collection and management very simple and the data collection and accessing becomes very easy as you can keep a record of very long time.
2. Because your competitor schools also have one
Yeah, you read it right. Almost all of the other schools now have a fully functional and responsive website. And as mentioned earlier, the parents now a day get too much choosy about their children and hence not having a proper or no website will badly affect your school.
Even after being good in other things such as good teacher quality, better facilities, but not having a good website will be a drawback.
3. You get a platform to show off your School
So having a website then you can add some sections to showcase your school and its facilities to boost and attract students. Events such as sports day, the annual day generally involve all and pomp and show of school and thus adding a separate column for it will be very attractive and thus makes your website more attractive.
4. No need for the involvement of more paperwork
With a website, you can put up notices online on it and parents and students can access it at any time and will be thus updated for the same. The paperwork is reduced, and thus you can publish the same on the website and thus the money spent on the printing will be reduced.
This you can use on some other stuff. Also as a school, you shall promote on the save of paper. And your students will also follow the trend, and this is an environmentally friendly practice.
Publishing the notices and every other related stuff on the website is an implication that you are changing with the time.
5. Future ready
Having a website makes your school future ready, and thus parents find your school a better place and thus can invest in there. They have an assurance that your school can be a better place and thus can train their ward better.
Being future ready not only means that you have a simple looking website, but the one with many interactive columns and daily management and updates. Only then you can focus an impression of future ready regarding the website.
So for such a large number of reasons of having a website and almost no reason of not having it, then why tell not you have not got one for your school. Even me as a parent, I will prefer to have my ward sent to a school with very well off facilities and teachers.
