In the latest installment we hear from Roslyn Public Schools in NY as they showcase thier SharePoint usage.
Join us for this webcast to discover how Roslyn Public Schools, with the support of B2B Technologies, leveraged the flexible design and web content capabilities of Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to deliver an inviting, personalized and valuable web site. Additionally, an extranet experience for parents, students, staff and the community was developed as both a portal for current students and for recruitment. Jason Lopez, the Chief Technology Officer at Roslyn Public Schools, and Dr. Dan Brenner, the Superintendent of Schools, will share their vision for a site that "Enhance(s) Home-School Communication," why SharePoint is the ideal platform, and critical role that visual design and user experience played in realizing the vision.
Roslyn Union Free School District, situated roughly 20 miles from Manhattan, is proud of its heritage and record of meeting or exceeding New York State standards and, more importantly, expectations of the community it serves on Long Island's north shore. In 2010 and 2011, Roslyn Schools, began work on developing a new web experience for parents and students which would provide ready secure access to student information such as attendance records, schedules and report cards. The team recognized that a professional design which embodied the districts' commitment to achievement and the community were equally as important as functionality to encourage use by parents and students. SharePoint 2010 was selected given it's extensibility in both function and form. Based on previous experience designing SharePoint websites in K-12, B2B Technologies was chosen as a partner for the project.
