eChalk's new publishing tools will allow you to customize your school or district homepages and public subpages to create a unique presence on the Web. With so many layout options and ways to organize your site's content, the possibilities are endless.
To help you get started, here is a sample layout that your school or district can create for your own site using the News Theme. The sample layout below features all the basic content areas you may see on a school or district homepage. This layout includes a photo gallery, featured events and Quick Links, a Principal's message, latest news and fundraising area.
A Footer Link List area at the bottom of the site ensures that important information can't be missed no matter where your visitors land.
Of course, you can customize and change any parts of this layout to showcase information that's important to your school or district!
If you have not configured the Site Information, Navigation and display of the Footer Link List, you can view instructions linked to below:
