Rich Text Editor
A word processor of sorts. Allows styled text. Includes bulleted lists, special characters, tables, and much more. Hyperlink to pages on the site, any URL, locker resources, or create a mailto link. Insert images uploaded to an image album.
Directory - Please DO NOT use this feature
Include any or all registered users from your site in a directory that includes name, phone number, extension, and position. User names link to their personal site, if it is published. Envelope icons allow public visitors to send an email message to anyone listed in a directory (admins have the ability to turn off the public contact form).
Create a slideshow of images from your image albums. The number and order of the images are yours to control. Choose from 5 different transitions.
Upload a single image directly from your hard drive. JPG, PNG, and GIF formats are supported.
Note: Because we convert all images to JPG on upload, animated GIFs and transparent GIFs/ PNGs are currently not supported.
RSS Feed - Currently NOT available to CCSD59
Add an RSS news feed from the district site, a school site, or an external source such as the Department of Education.
SWF and FLV files are currently supported. Customizable title, width and height.
Each section has its own separate events, but calendars can be set to include the events from sub-sections. Calendars come in five different styles including day, week, and month.
You can use a Google Calendar in place of the School Loop's Calendar. if you wish to do that, please contact: Barb DeMilio
Like events, each section has its own separate news. Options include the number of headlines to display on the page and whether to use the Short (headline only) or Long (headline, first 3 lines of text, and date published) style.
Notes/Blog - Blog is NOT available to CCSD59
Essentially a news post without an expiration date. Notes remain published until you delete them.
Each section has its own locker. Upload files and links to the locker and make them available for download. Since it is possible to set any locker element to display the contents of any locker on the site or any folder within a locker, organizing resources into folders is recommended.
