Online Presence

Many of our staff have cultivated an online presence in place of former means of communication. Communication has become more dynamic and relevant to many parents and extended family members.

Beginning in February, all teachers in SAU15 will have their own online presence. This presence be in a blog or web site format. All must include:

1. Teacher Name (Title, First and Last)

2. Teaching Assignment (Grade(s), Subject(s)

3. Introduction of Self / Welcome

4. Updates

  • Memorial and Underhill – minimum of monthly
  • Cawley (Must posts the Five Casts of Assignments weekly)

Templates were created for your convenience. Click HERE for a Blogger template. Click HERE for a Google Sites template



For staff that already has a digital presence (wiki, blog), you may maintain what you already have been using but add the required things listed above by February 22, 2013. Training for Google and the digital presence will be provided and differentiated leading up to 2/22/12. Cawley can use Homeworknow.com this year but the subscription ends June 30, 2013.

Starting at the beginning of the next school year (2013-14), the entire district will be consistent using Google Blogger or Google Sites.

Once you have finished your online presence, please fill in this form. This will communicate to our district web administrator that you are finished and your site will be linked to your name on the district and school website.
