Web Site Departments: North Hagerstown High
North High's web site has grown into a large number of web documents
and curricular areas, which now requires a team of students and a faculty
member to monitor, maintain, and improve. To obtain a clear view of the
existing elements of the website, one can visit the NHHS
Web Site Directory, which contains links to all of the major elements
of the web site.
Currently, students involved in the Computer Applications course
can be assigned to the following existing web site areas:
Teachers On-Line: Students will maintain existing teacher web pages.
Students will be assigned one or more teachers whose web page can be created
and developed by students through an interview process.
Teachers who do not have existing web pages may be asked by students
for basic information such as
academic history, school subjects taught and other interests they
might like to share.
The Alumni Page: Students will add Alumni data as it comes in to
the page so that Alumni can contact each other by e-mail and through web
pages. If alumni request the develop of a web page for posting on the NHHS
site, students will obtain data and format it for the web. Students will
also research North High history and post interesting facts, photos and
other data to the web page to keep alumni returning to the site.
The NHHS Information Page: Students maintaining this page will place
announcements of upcoming events, schedules of important meetings, directions
to the school, important telephone numbers, accomplishments of school organizations,
