Hosting Provider

The current web site is a Google Site.  We took a look at other schools and other providers as well.  We found that many schools are using WordPress, and others are using Drupal and even Ning.  I also considered using Blogger, which is a blogging tool that I have been using for years.  However, in the end I came back to the fact that while Google Sites are somewhat restrictive from a visual perspective, there are some integrated features that I think will come in really handy for us.  The most important is that certain sub-pages can be made accessible to a single Google Group, which will enable us to use the site as a not only a public facing communications vehicle, but also a document storage solution for the many sub-groups in our school.

So for the time being, my proposal is that we stick with Google Sites as our solution.  Next, let's talk about Site Navigation.
