. WebSchoolPro is not language specific, so when we say any
school, anywhere, anytime, we mean it! Once your request is approved
(usually within 24 hours) you will receive an activation code and a link
to get started.What do you mean by "Virtual Classrooms" for every teacher?
Virtual Classrooms for every teacher simply means that teachers have not just a page, but their own section where they can add as many pages as they like. These pages can be used for anything really, homework, calendars, galleries, videos...below are some random links to teacher pages.
They can be simple and straight forward...Once the site is set up and running, I will be transferring control to someone else at the school (since I'm just "helping out"). Is it easy to switch "owners" of the site?
or they can be creative...
It's very easy to create users, editors and site administrators, so you can set up new accounts and pass the torch at any time. What is the "built in emergency alert system" and how does it work?
The emergency alert system is built into your school website. Visitors sign up, entering their name, email, and phone number, and select to be contacted by email or SMS (text message). When a message needs to go out, the administrator inputs the message into a single form on the web page and "sends". One message goes out instantly to any and all who have signed up. We would like to sign up our school, but don't want to "commit" to anything yet, what is the best way to try WebSchoolPro?
The best thing to do is just sign up. There is no obligation, no risk, and it only takes a few minutes. Once you fill out the form you will receive a code and a link where you activate the school site. Once activated you can immediately begin working on the site, changing information, adding pages, etc. You are welcome to use your free site (and yes, you can point a unique domain at the free sites as well) for as long as you like, and you can upgrade to the ad free version at any time without losing any of your changes and modifications.
