We just started using schoolwires <>. It is much less expensive than schoolfusion and in a lot of cases shows it. I have some cons, but a lot of pros including easy to design web pages for people that can barely turn on the computer. There are a few gotchas though - the basic features are a bit bland - each time you want another feature, there is a price to pay - luckily the feature is a one time only fee. We want to be able to do flash animation on our home page so we can change the picture often. We thought we would be able to simply change the picture on the home page, but unless the end-user clears their cache - they will never see it. The design team is currently working on our template so flash works.

If you have any other questions, call me at 802-383-6087.

Chittenden East Supervisory Union is researching external web hosting of its school web pages that will include templates and maybe some options such as calendar, survey, notification and intranet.
Please share:
- your external host' name, if you have one
- links to your web sites
- your pro/con experience with vendor
- what features do you recommend
Thank you,
