Will the website upgrade just be for MHS or for the entire district? I seriously hope it is the latter, because right now muskegonorway.org is a terribly designed website that is outdated, old looking, and does not represent the district's current technology initiatives. As a former student of the school (class of 2012), there were times where I needed to find things, but the site is so unorganized that it was sometimes hard to find what I was looking for. The district has Facebook and Twitter pages, but nobody knows about them because they don't even mention it on their website! Right now, we have the worst website in the Classic 8 Conference. Hopefully the entire website gets a much needed upgrade!

I have to believe it's for the district. MHS has a page on the district site, so it would stand to reason that you'd have to fix that first. I'd agree, electronic communications is an area of need. As someone who looks to these sites first before I make a call, it's a challenge to find information, and much of it is outdated.
