    Changes to school websites

    Deadline: December 31

     As a reminder: All school websites provided by the district through the Schoolwires platform will be discontinued as of January 1, 2019.

    School leaders have a number of options to maintain their school’s online presence and communicate with their school community, including the new school profile pages on the district website (available in early December), creating and hosting their own website, social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), mobile apps, or tools that use managed communities. Tips for setting up social media accounts—and for launching your own website—are available here.

    Communications staff members are also available to answer questions or provide guidance.

    In planning for the new year, please consider which online tools best meet your community’s needs and share your plans with the communications team to be included on your school’s profile page on the district website.

    For questions or support, email communications@bcps.k12.md.us.
