Click on any section in the left hand column to work on. Only sections that are activated in the page settings (see previous slide for information) will appear on your website. Tips for File ManagerCreate specific categories/folders to house assignments/files.The website accepts a wide variety of file types for documents, images, audio, video, or other types of files including flipcharts. A list of acceptable file types are located within file manager. Rename PDF files so that they are specific and shorter than those assigned by Adobe.PDF is a more universal file type which can be accessed by various users. All users do not have Microsoft Office including Word, Publisher, Excel, etc. If you convert your files to PDF you can be assured they can be accessed when students are not on campus. Calendar

You can add any assignments, tests, etc. to your calendar by clicking on the date you want and filling in the information for that particular day.

You can also add a description or link any necessary forms to events you add.

Sponsors, Directors, and CoachesYou will have a teacher website and a website for your activity, club, or sport. If you get calendars to me I can update your calendars for you with events. BHCS is not responsible for information on external sites, however it is a good idea to link sites to your page so that parents can be directed to one place and go from there. General Tips for your WebsiteAlways log out of your website.Your changes are instant, even if you cant see them--- The Public Can!Use the spellcheck inside school in sites.
